A Strange Weave of Time and Place – Exhibition at Site Gallery 12 – 28 July 2019

A Strange Weave of Time and Place

A new exhibition curated by ADRC PhD student Jeanine Griffin, is announced at Site Gallery in Sheffield.

The exhibition ‘A Strange Weave of Time and Place’ explores notions of aura & authenticity in the post-digital context.

Among the artists whose work is featured are Sheffield Hallam University Art and Design Research Centre‘s PhD student Diana Taylor, Fine Art reader Penny McCarthy and recent SHU MA Fine Art graduate Jan Hopkins.

The selected works circle around the complex relations between the auratic (Walter Benjamin’s term for the authentic, original artefact, singular in space and time), and the technologically reproduced, dispersed and viewed art object more prevalent in the current post-digital period. Including video, sculpture, drawing, textiles, audio and 3D printed objects.

Artists include:

Cory Arcangel, James Clarkson, Tim Etchells, Jan Hopkins, Margarita Gluzberg, Oliver Laric, Penny McCarthy, Florian Roithmayr and Diana Taylor.
