‘Birmingham Show’ is an exhibition connecting gaps, distances and potentials of artists who have lived, worked or studied within the city. Three key questions underpin the exhibition – ‘What is the art of Birmingham?’ ‘Is there an accent to Birmingham’s art making?’ and ‘How is Birmingham useful for the production of art?’
Eastside Projects’ intention is not to create an authoritative survey, but to initiate conversations and think about our city as a place that produces and supports artists in many different ways. By displaying a set of works that wouldn’t otherwise be experienced together, we hope to make visible co-existing and overlapping objects, processes, politics, relationships and scenes emanating from Birmingham.
