Showcase (in support of Northern artists)
Date: Opens 6th June 2021
Location: All Dean Clough Galleries
The largest group show Dean Clough has ever witnessed embraces a simple idea. One artist shows one work. If they sell it, they put another one up. If someone likes what they see, they check out the artist’s website or send them an email. As the pandemic declines it should help the arts sector come back to life…
But it’s a bit more than that. It’s also a show that will change, subtly, as the year wears on. It can pause for ‘local lockdowns’ or accommodate social distancing measures or whatever nasty surprises might yet come our way…
Above all, ‘Showcase’ is a chance to illustrate quite how deeply enmeshed the visual arts are within the social fabric. While it has a focus on West Yorkshire, it includes painters and photographers we admire from Liverpool to Hull and from Sheffield to Middlesbrough. It’s not definitive; but it is illustrative of something quite wonderful about people. Don’t miss it. And keep coming back!
