Generator 2018 Members’ Show
Venue: GENERATORprojects // Date: Friday 2nd February // Time: 6-9pm
This year’s GENERATORprojects Members’ Show has over 100 works ranging from a hessian and iron sculpture, painting, printmaking, photography, a giant wooden trilby, and a doll growing out of a china bowl as well as some video works.
The show acts as a sneak peek at work by students from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design and Perth College, who hire a van every year to bring work through. It’s great to see this dedication, a bit like going to the degree show but with 50 artists in each room. Most early career artists in the local area will submit a piece of work.
As with many of Generator’s shows this is likely to be the first time these artists have been paid for their involvement or given a budget. They will receive assistance in writing an artists’ statement and the exhibition will be photographed by an emerging photographer. The artists then have photos for their portfolio and a presence online through our website. Generator aims to bring their members’ work to as large an audience as possible and hope to inspire further collaborations.
The exhibition opens on Friday 2nd Feb with a party from 6-9pm, and it continues until Sunday 25th February. Generator is located at 25/26 Mid Wynd Industrial Estate, DD1 4JG.
