Testing Ground Private View

Surface Gallery Volunteer Show 2012: April 4th – April 21st
Private View: 3rd April, 6-8pm
Testing Ground, noun; a region resembling a laboratory inasmuch as it offers opportunities for observation and practice and experimentation.

For the duration of the three-week exhibition Surface Gallery will be transformed into a Testing Ground; a creative laboratory, whereby participating artists will have the opportunity for practice, experimentation and play. All artists will exhibit new work using the exhibition specifically as an opportunity to test out a new idea, artwork or strand of their practice.

Testing Ground questions the idea of the ‘finished’ artwork within the framework of an exhibition whilst lingering on the nature of making and the ever important testing and critical engagement process. As the artworks potentially evolve and transform throughout the duration of the exhibition an ongoing curatorial shift will take place between artworks and space.
