Hankering for Classification presents new and existing work by ten artists from across the UK, who employ methods of classification, archiving and collecting. The exhibition will also include bespoke exhibition design developed by artist Poppy Whatmore.

Through the experience of differences and relations between things, we determine the meaning they have for us. In a variety of mediums including sculpture, performance, painting and video the artists in this exhibition carry out our shared compulsion to organize, record and curate the world around us, with a will to make sense of it. Whatmore’s reworking of traditional exhibition design will visually and physically connect the art works together emphasizing the nature of an exhibition as a careful arrangement of art works, which contain their own contexts and histories but are also related to one another and the viewer.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of events including: Artists video screenings, talks and workshops. For a full list of programmed events please check:
