FABRICATE is an exhibition team that have recently opened submissions for a multi dimensional showcase of materials and conceptual fabrications by artists, makers, thinkers, designers, poets, or writers. We basically asked have you got a good lie, go on lie to us we will give you gallery hanging space.
The open call was for any artists who demonstrated dishonesty, disingenuity, misunderstanding, or outright lies in the physical fabrication or conceptualisation of their ideas. Successful submissions were displayed in the Arundel Room of Millennium Galleries, one of the largest and most prestigious art spaces in Sheffield. It was an honour, a scary honour, to be apart of such an amazing event.
I am co-director of this group and lead a strong group of volunteers who put together a gallery exhibition in the centre of Sheffield. We really embraced the challenges!
This exhibition was a great success and we had more then 2,000 visitors over the opening week. The comments we gained were amazing and included:
