Sorry About Last Night @ Art Sheffield 2016, May 6 – Jun 6

4 May 2016

The Sorry About Last Night group exhibition is on at Sheffield’s The Washington Pub, opening May 6 and running to June 6.

Presented by (It’s all) Tropical art space, the event is running alongside the Art Sheffield 2016 and features work by Claire BoydLaura YuileLindsey MendickLiv FontaineLuke OverinMathew ParkinMillington Marriott and Victoria Fornieles among others.

The multidisciplinary show celebrates work birthed from bad life choices, and is placed between the shiny optimism of getting ready before a night out and the consequent hangover the next day. In sharing truths and slurring emotions the evening seeks what the press release calls “drunken  inspirations, drinking to forget, passionate pub debates, pointless fights with friends, loss of inhibitions, misguided decisions, hungover regrets, next day apologies, and one too many Jaegerbombs [sic].”

A confessional performance/public meltdown by Self Esteem (Rebecca Taylor of Slow Club) will commence at on the evening of May 6, with Karaoke running into the late hours.

The fifth instalment in the Elements at MilMa series of group exhibitions is coming to London’s Millington | Marriott, titled let the brittle bits and running from May 8 to May 31.

The stages of invitation exist in order to allow “each element the experience of both complete and loss of control resulting in an exhibition catalysed through each artist reacting to one another”. Participating in the fifth instalment of this series are artists Heather Phillipson, Michael PhillipsonRichard MüllerRachel Crummey, and Susan Sluglett.

Lithium @ MilMa, Jan 30 – Feb 22

29 January 2015

Millington | Marriott is bringing in the exhibition Lithium, which will be running at their London Space from January 30 to February 22.

The group show comes as the third in a series of group shows entitled Elements at MilMa, and features the works of three different artists: Peles EmpireGiles Round, and Alex Cecchetti. The invitation nature of the show – in which an initial artist is invited to participate, then invites the second artist, who extends the invitation to the third – lends a dynamic quality to the show.

Unlike most curated exhibitions, this show is self-curated, or rather evolving in a somewhat natural progression, inviting both chaos and a certain unspoken order its nature.
