Shifting Boundaries is conceived as an online meeting space where we explore what it means to trust and step out of one’s threshold. Conceptualised during the Covid-19 lockdown, this gathering space coordinates our return to one another and to shared spaces. Acknowledging the importance of trust and love at a time of difficulty and uncertainty, the exhibition and programmes consider the role artists can play in developing ideas of togetherness through collaboration and stretching comfort zones.
The exhibition displays the variety of artist practices and skills from The AntiMA. Works that will be on display manifest acts of care-taking through the handling of different materials, and the commitment towards uncovering possibilities of living and relating even through precarious times.
Jules Allan, Grace Slater, Yang-En Hume, Anthony Gorin, Charlotte Still, Zoe Toolan, Patrick Turner-Lee, Stephanie Crechriou, Rosie Munro Kerr
A library of resources where the AntiMA and its audience can share materials with one another. It is aimed for anyone who is interested in academia but does not have access to the resources.
Over the course of the exhibition, highlights from the library will be featured on the AntiMA Instagram.
Curations invites the audience to curate featured works by the exhibiting artists and share their thoughts behind the curations. Through this process, we hope to establish a reverse dialogue where artists learn from the audience and consider how these ideas could contribute to the development of their artistic practice.
Felt making: On a white cube
by Stephanie Crechriou
Join this workshop with felt-making tutor, Stephanie Crechriou to explore the limits imposed upon art through the 'white cube'. Translating the term 'white cube' literally onto felt, the workshop encourages participants to craft on the cube than within it, considering the means by which artists have exposed or refused them through their practice.
Stephanie has been teaching the technique of felt making, turning wool into amazing bespoke felt items since 2010.

All and Nothing
by Zoe Toolan
"Rather than a description of an artform or discipline, Live Art is a way of thinking about what art is, what it can do, and where and how it can be experienced."
- extracted from About LADA
(Live Art Development Agency) - What is Live Art?
And to quote Thom Yorke:
"Just 'cause you feel it, Doesn't mean it's there."
With that in mind, Toolan would like to lead you into a collaborative and surprisingly haptic virtual space where expanded drawing meets Live Art. This fully participatory, one-time only Zoom hour of critical thinking, playful chat, deep discussion and interesting doings will challenge the fourth wall and decentralise the importance of the art object, hopefully resulting in nothing, yet everything!
DATE & TIME:
6 - 7.30 pm (BST)
Wednesday 23 September
