Join artists and designers Matthew Galloway and Ella Sutherland in the gallery to discuss their new exhibition 'Speaking Places: How to work' which explores their collaborative practice and the opening of 'Speaking Places' (a public art project taking place throughout 2015 in Hamilton’s City Gate Plaza).
Focusing on the ways language may exist and collide within the context of a specific locale, 'Speaking Places: How to work' looks at the different ways in which the by-products of the natural and constructed environment can be understood, highlighted, traced and proposed.
This presentation seeks to question how graphic design might offer up alternative perspectives; continuing to draw upon historical, cultural and social precedents whilst also claiming its own identity as an autonomous form.
The Speaking Places series is intended to continually evolve and adapt in response to Hamilton’s local context and the fluidity of the urban environment and this exhibition is an early opportunity to introduce the structure of the project, unveil the first phase of works, and begin conversations.
Join us at the opening preview of 'Speaking Places: How to work' on Wed 22 Apr, 5-7pm.
