24 May – 1 June 2017
Ashton Memorial & Gift Shop Cafe, Lancaster, UK
Past Forward was an exhibition exploring reactivated and recycled historical ideas, positioning them within a contemporary context. It featured Up North Arts members and other artists. The exhibition was shared between two spaces, a formal gallery at the top of the memorial, and the cafe located adjacent to it. This meant that viewers not only experienced the works in a white cube setting, but came across artwork in the context of their everyday lives.
Co-curated as part of Up North Arts (UNA)
