IN | CITE 

A social meeting place for artists from
all art forms to talk, shop and test ideas from 4pm to 5.30pm. In response to the month’s theme, artists are invited to bring along some of their work; have a yarn or have a listen to an artist Show x Tell. You can also join an artist-led
roundtable conversation about what provocations this concept might offer for artistic practice, processes, concepts and aesthetics.

UNTIL 18 DECEMBER

Cherry Stones

Artist Aaron Perkins and screenwriter/director Sam Dixon’s paintings and writings converse across media to invite make-believe and to offer an imaginative escape from the game of life carried on just outside the pockmarked and graffitied walls of The Old Lock Up. 

Catch the Artist Talk and Film Screening on 18 December 2.30pm.

FROM 22 JANUARY UNTIL 28 JANUARY

Entwined as others

Helen Hardess and Tiana Jefferies combine their shared art practices of casting, collecting, assembling and collaborative action to explore affective registers of objects, bodies, and architecture of The Old Lock Up site. The project explores the ungraspable forces of our destabilised biosphere and recognises that humanity cannot survive without non-human others. Attend the opening event on 22 January from 5pm to 7pm and the workshop on 29 January.
