Reliably informed

The only thing in life that never changes, is that everything changes… And that’s a good thing. Art like any discipline can get bogged down in a ‘that’s how it has always been’ attitude that can strangle the dynamism out of up and coming artists and make the scene drab and inaccessible.

Workplace Foundation, a charity based in Gateshead in the North of England that supports emerging and under-represented artists, addressed this issue with Everything Must Go (part 1) – a group exhibition Gateshead curated by Paul Moss and Miles Thurlow in 2005. The exhibition brought together artists from across Britain and optimistically looked outwards into the art-world from their base in Gateshead Town Centre

They return from 16th November (until 21st December) to bring you Everything Must Go (part 2) at The Old Post Office, Gateshead, an exhibition that nostalgically looks back at a shared history and explores new ways of working with artists. It also marks the launch of Workplace Foundation’s, Community of Artists, which recognises the need for togetherness in a fragmented world. It seeks new forms of representation away from the outdated commercial gallery model and towards an alternative form of non-exclusive representation that supports contemporary art and provides curators, collectors, arts industry specialists and the general public access to the art scene.

The preview takes place on Friday 15th November and features guest DJ, Paul Merrick. In true community style, all are welcome.
