The urban environment is explored through sculpture, image and video in the CUBEOpen and see some cutting edge furniture design by award winning Glasgow based designer John Galvin in the Design Lab.
The winner of the CUBEOpen 2011 is Shift/Delete, who have been awarded a residency on CUBELab later this year.
Also part of the CUBEOpen was the New Arpley Proposals Project, which was developed as part of a public consultation on the future of Arpley landfill site in Warrington. Artist Ailie Rutherford worked in consultation with environmental restoration experts, councillors, residents groups and landfill opposition groups. Proposals considered community ownership, sustainable solutions to waste, low budget and low intervention methods for transforming the site as well as deliberately provocative proposals.
