Showcasing a cross-section of the artistic community operating in the local area, from photography to performance, the exhibition explored these artists’ diverse practices, and some of the themes and issues that they were engaging with at the time.

The artists were selected from an open-call to which 460 artists put forward work. The selection panel was chaired by Andrew Nairne, Director of Kettle’s Yard, and included Amy Botfield, Arts Council England; Guy Haywood, Curator, Exhibitions and Collection, Kettle’s Yard; Kettle’s Yard committee member Sabine Jaccaud, AstraZeneca; Issam Kourbaj, artist; and Harriet Loffler, Curator, New Hall Art Collection, Murray Edwards College. 

A vibrant programme of events, performances and talks accompanied the exhibition.
