Working Against the System

10 March 2011 - 08 April 2011

This exhibition draws together eight artists using and abusing the recognised practices in painting. There will be an Artist Symposium at Gallery North on Thursday 31 March 2011.

Jo Bruton, Debbie Bell, Noel Forster, Yvonne Hindle, Jenny Jennings, Paul Peden, Katie Pratt and DJ Simpson.

These are a mutinous crew self aware and capable of double-dealing. They swerve back and forth between organisation and impulse.

Many of the artists included are reclaiming systems of production only to throw the viewer off course by introducing the problematic. These works appear to want to defy categorisation. They puncture the established with the spontaneous and the objective with the subjective.

You are invited to a Symposium at Gallery North on Thursday 31 March 3pm - 6pm which will be followed by refreshments. The Symposium costs 50 pounds to attend but is offered at a reduced fee of 20 pounds to NAFAE, NSEAD and ATS members and students.
