Press Play 2020
KOSAR CONTEMPORARY is delighted to present the culmination of Spike Print Studio's year long course Press Play in 2020, designed to support artists to sustain working practice and develop research strategies.
"The idea of this show revolves around the need to be fleet of foot, light touch, quick to respond. We're living in a moment when policy, guidance, rules, opportunities, incomes can change in hours. We respond to this playfully; we turn up, materials under arm, and assemble. Fallen branches, rolls of paper, lengths of cord, translucent substrates, sheets of silicon...the only theme binding us is our willingness to play, fail, imagine, realise and share."
Participating artists include Jessica Akerman, Ruth Broadway, Steve Burden, Clare Cutts, Emma Gregory, Wayne Hill, Sylvie Magnaval, Pauline Scott-Garrett and Emily Snell.
