Exhibition opportunity for ArtCan artist members and artists working or living within South East Essex
Continuum is a month-long show, with three weekends in April of interactive events, performances, music and readings.
The exhibition and accompanying events will include ArtCan artists as well as artists from Southend & South East Essex. The ideas of momentum and progression are at the core of the curators’ objectives and vision for this exhibition. They seek works that will respond to the title as well as the artists placement within society today. The aim is to make the exhibition broad ranging, with something for everyone, and culturally engaging.
The exhibition will be curated by:The Finsbury Park Deltics & Lawrence Mathias with support from Kate Enters
