Makers Mark

Group show

13 July – 24 August

Opening 7:30pm Friday 12 July

PLUS: Live Performance by Les Petroleuses at 8pm on the opening. See our NEWS section for more details.

From brush strokes to finger prints, drips and dribbles to chisel or saw marks, in our new exhibition Cupola Contemporary Art is looking to explore the hand of the maker in the work. Leaving behind the slick high tech polish we are looking for artists and makers who embrace the raw and unfiltered. For those who like to let the means of production shine through.

Artists taking part include:

Alysia Webster, Ann Bates, Barry Cottrell, Brian Holland, Beca Beeby, Clee Claire Lee, Deiniol Williams, Emma-Jane Rule, Fleur Simon, Hilary Cartmel, Jacqui Gallon, John Brokenshire, John Pedder, Julia Poulton, Karen Sherwood, Lin Cheung, Melissa Montague, Miguel Sopena, Milena Xenaki, Modern Floss – Charlotte Taylor, Molly Goldwater, Paul Morley, Pauline Rignall, Rebeka, Sara Szigethy, Sam Lander, Sonia Tyrna, Stathis Dimitriadis

As part of the Makers Mark Exhibition Les Petroleuses (improvising arsonists Lyn Hodnett and Gillian Whiteley) do a slow burn, kindle the flames and rip it up sonically, visually and vocally on cello, violin, trumpet, hurdy-gurdy, accordions, wind-up record player, scissors, paper, stone, graphite, vocals, things that jangle, assorted objects, other stuff and whatever takes our fancy…

Sparks may fly…but always expect a blazing din and a warm glow
