Gittins, Robert Pereira Hind, Darius Kowal, Geri Loup Nolan, Alex
Oleksyn, Tim Sandys, Beth Shapeero, and Eva Ullrich.

According to Co-curator Elizabeth Lyne, the exhibition was envisaged
as a platform to highlight contemporary, material-based practices in
relation to a multilateral theme.  ‘The works we are showing invite
the viewer to respond with both immediacy and reflective engagement.’

9am-5pm, Monday-Friday.  A private viewing and opening reception will
be held from 6pm-8pm on Saturday, 14 July 2012.
