People joined us on Digbeth First Friday for the public preview of ‘This Time of Day can be Dangerous’, the second of two Jerwood Encounters 3-Phase exhibitions.
Grace’s practice examines modes and limits of immersion and perception via the distinction between still and moving image. Existing somewhere in between these categories or sometimes in neither one, her videos become a framework for thinking about the structuring of information and experience, visual sensation and interference, the idea of the event, and the action of editing.
Jerwood Encounters: 3-Phase is a new artist development collaboration between Eastside Projects (Birmingham), g39 (Cardiff), and Jerwood Charitable Foundation, through its London based gallery programme Jerwood Visual Arts. 3-Phase offers two early career artists the opportunity to make new work that will be exhibited through a year long programme of exhibitions across the collaborating galleries.
Following their solo shows at Eastside Projects the artists will present a joint exhibition as part of the Jerwood Visual Arts programme in London in May 2015 and solo shows with g39, Cardiff in November 2015.
‘Birmingham Show’ and the Black Pleasure bar were also open along with exhibitions, performances and events hosted by our Digbeth First Friday partners.
