What an amazing year – thanks to the generosity of our Kickstarter Backers and the hard work of our team we were able to hold some fantastic events and support some extraordinary artists over 2018, including Libby Cufley, Aleks Wojtulewicz, Sophie Bancroft, David Checkley and Fiona Shaw. Our Associate Producers also used the space to develop their practices, including Marcus Keating’s wonderful queer-art exhibition Torch Bearing, Ed Wakfield’s extraordinary residency Feel Better At Fail Better and Magdalena Jasiak’s achingly beautiful No Strings Attached
Out of the residencies also came a longer term project – The Mann Archive – working with Anita Mann to establish and preserve the mass of information documenting Birmingham’s art community over the past ten years.
Here’s to 2019!
