About

We are Ryan, Alice and Ariadne, a group of MA students studying Art History and Curating. We have spent the last 8 months organising an exhibition titled Three Models for Change which will open on Friday 1 June 2018 as part of Digbeth First Friday.  

Our exhibition includes new commissions and existing works by artists Chris Alton, Ian Giles and Greta Hauer – their works highlight historical moments and ways of thinking which in turn establishes future potentials of communities. In a time of political unrest, this exhibition emphasises the importance of a shared knowledge through people, places and time. The works in the exhibition will get you thinking about:  

  • The formation of a fictional Quaker-punk bank  
  • The staging of cross-generational Queer histories  
  • The uncertainty surrounding a newly formed volcanic island and its territorial disputes.  

To best represent the exhibition and our collaboration, we would like to produce an online publication which will be distributed for free. This will allow us to develop as writers and will be an opportunity for us to extend the life of the exhibition through several exciting written responses and interviews with our participating artists. As we are early on in our careers, the publication will be a great opportunity for us to establish our curatorial practices and personal thoughts and experiences regarding the exhibition. Your contribution will help fund the design, production and a commissioned text. Thank you in advance for your help.

For further details about the exhibition, please visit the Grand Union website.

Risks and challenges

We would aim to publish the e-publication by August 2018, as it is intended to be an 'afterthought' to the themes and discussions prompted by the exhibition. The only risks to this project is that the graphic design and text takes a little longer than we expect and publication date is pushed back.
