There are 19 taking part this year, including Sebastian Jefford, Benjamin Orlow, Luke Overin, Harriet Rickard, Eleanor Sikorski,  Mathew ParkinFreddy Tuppen and more, as well as Carl Gent, whom AQNB interviewed recently in conjunction with their ‘fals tru luvvers a’shore an H’agiographic dysphonia’ contribution.

Along with the exhibition — that also includes commissioned and site-specific works — there is a weekly series of after-hours events, called Friday Lates, where artists are encouraged to elaborate on and exchange ideas around their work with visitors in a more intimate setting.**

In the basement of the gallery, the London-based artist created a site-specific installation that converted a series of rooms into a nightclub, which will run until the end of the year. The mixed-media work incorporates architectural and furniture design, as well as wall-based embroidery and lighting.

The stools and benches are softened by upholstered beach towels and pink and blue hues flood the space. Tuppen scripted the design to “reveal the historical narratives of the building, as well as layering in his own fabricated fictions exploring the human relationship with escapism and hedonism.”

Tuppen’s recent exhibitions include Island Theory (2015) at London’s Jonathan Viner Gallery and Placeholder (2015) at London’s Store space.**
