ILLUSION

CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR

11 | 12 | 13 December

MENTAL SPACES C.I.C., in conjunction with ‘The Newhampton Arts Centre’, are providing a three day ‘Contemporary Art Fair’, showcasing a dynamic and eclectic range of local Artists’ work.

The fith text in this series is: Sculpting Body Ideals: Alison Lapper Pregnant and the Public Display of Disability by Ann Millet. The controversial sculpture has brought widespread attention to the model's body and her life story

Drawn Parallels is a group exhibition of artists at Eagle Works Gallery in October 2015. From across the West Midlands, these artists have been brought together by Turning Point West Midlands (TPWM).

Relaunch edition of COLLECTIViSM Magazine featuring: poetry; articles on artist Sarah Harford, Theoretical Tuesdays and Wolverhampton City of Sanctuary – together with an overview of upcoming events in Wolverhampton and beyond.

The fourth text in this series is: The Precession of simulacra by Jean Baudrillard. This text explores the relationship between symbols and reality.

The third text in this series is:  Against Interpretation by Susan Sontag. In which she argues: It is a habit of approaching works of art in order to interpret them that sustains the fancy that there really is such a thing as the content of a work of art.

The second text in this series is The Ontology of the Photographic Image written by André Bazin and translated from French to English by Hugh Gray.

The first text is Rosalind Krauss' Sculpture in the Expanded Field. The text raises examples of monuments, earthworks, construction and more seeking to locate them in the wider realm of landscape and architecture polarised by not architecture and not landscape.
