Exhibition: A Minor Place

Location: The Royal Victoria Works, Studley, Warwickshire

Date: Until 11th September 2016

Details: ‘This exhibition at Artistsworkhouse presents work by three Midlands based artists: Leicester based Hugh Marwood, and Birmingham’s Shaun Morris and Andrew Smith. Working across a range of practices including drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, text and video the exhibition, in its broadest terms, presents as its overarching theme different imaginative responses to the urban environment.

The work on display is striking in its diversity but shares an interest across the exhibition in the ‘minor places’ of the urban world: the lost voices and forgotten messages; the haunted spaces and interim states; in fragmented texts and uncoupled phrases; the encrypted clues and overlooked evidence; erasures and amendments; erosion and decay.’
