PractisePractice: the exhibition


23rd -  25th April, 2010
Blank Gallery

12 Artist /teachers explore their own practice through painting, ceramics, printmaking, drawing, photography and mixed media work.

The exhibition was conceived as opportunity for artists working in education to explore their own practice through personal responses outside the educational context. The title 'PractisePractice' was chosen to reflect the discipline and routine of both the educational institution and that of artistic process. In balancing the roles and responsibilities in educational settings, the artist can easily fade into the background. If education is to be inspiring then facilitators must have the opportunity to respond and communicate through their chosen media, experiment with materials and processes as well as reflect on and develop their own work as artists. Their growth is essential to the future growth of others.

Blank Gallery and Studios

Launched in April 2007, Blank is a studio and gallery complex run entirely by artists. Its purpose is to house and support contemporary art in all its forms. The artists based at Blank produce a vibrant and eclectic mix of work, including visual and sound installation, performance and more. Situated at the edge of Hove in Portslade, Blank is part of a wave of pioneering contemporary art venues and organisations, who, attracted by the remoteness of the industrial wilderness, have moved here and are instigating a change. We have a strong line up of exhibitions programmed and are creating opportunities locally and internationally through a number of artists led initiatives.
