Bankley studio holder and CG Associate member Lucy Harvey has been selected to curate Castlefield Gallery's next Launch Pad exhibition. The exhibition will include works by Rosanne Robertson, Richard Proffitt, Cherry Tenneson, Fliss Quick, Hannah Leighton-Boyce, Lucy Harvey.
The exhibition title is drawn from Harvey’s research into traditional crafts and Burnley-based filmmaker, Sam Hanna’s documentaries (1940-80) which, in his own words, depict “old English crafts captured for posterity”. For Posterity brings together six artists whose practice engages with chance, failure and the functions of objects. Working across sculpture, installation, film and performance they present the transformative ways in which artists invent and reinterpret history, place and language.
