Exhibition: CTRL/Shift - The 62 Group of Textile Artists @ 20-21 Visual Arts Centre

CTRL/Shift is a major touring exhibition developed by the 62 Group of Textile Artists in partnership with independent curator Liz Cooper. The exhibition takes shifts and changes as its theme. In particular it is focused on artists whose practice is or has been transformed, especially through innovation in textile art.

Featuring a wide variety of techniques and approaches, the exhibition comprises over thirty artworks by twenty five artists. Due to the size of the exhibition, some of the works are being shown in two venues: 20-21 Visual Arts Centre, and also on the first floor of Scunthorpe Central (just across Church Square from 20-21). Please see below for Scunthorpe Central opening times, as they differ from 20-21 Visual Arts Centre’s.

Exhibition: TRUE TO SIZE - Heather Phillipson @ 20-21 Visual Arts Centre

True to Size is a bold, colourful journey through seven sculptural vignettes that combine online culture with ideas of fantasy, emotion and care.

The exhibition features mass produced materials, such as large printed emojis and teddy bears with sound and video animation in a series of fantastical and furry sculptural narratives. In one scene, a bear wearing a pink ball gown climbs a set of cardboard steps, and then emerges triumphant from emoji flames. In another, a bear has cut itself in half with giant emoji scissors.

True to Size by Heather Phillipson was commissioned in 2015 by the Arts Council to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Arts Council Collection. As only the second time that this unique touring exhibition has been displayed in its entirety, this really is a rare opportunity to view this work in full.
