Here’s some news we got from Exeter’s Spacex, Marvin Gaye Chetwynd will talk broadly about her practice.
The Exeter Spacex is celebrating closure and reflecting on 40 year of Spacex success in the city, and it all takes place on April 2.
The Spacex, in partnership with the Exeter Phoenix and the Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery, Exeter, presents The Weight of the World, a solo exhibition by Irish artist Sean Lynch featuring three new video commissions and the UK premiere of the projected video element of Adventure: Capital, that represented Ireland at the Venice Biennale 2015.
Artist Rosalie Schweiker will work with Spacex, Exeter, to imagine a future art institution. Users of Spacex, from artists and community groups to the wider public, will also be invited to share their aspirations and ideas for this new organisation.
Spacex, Exeter’s contemporary visual arts organisation, has successfully raised £10,000 to support its new artists residency programme. Hundreds of people have donated money to the campaign, and in return will receive artworks, posters and publications.
Following a successful crowdfunder campaign, Exeter’s contemporary art space Spacex is now inviting proposals from artists whose practice involves collaboration and an exploration of how art is used in a social context.
Spacex, Exeter’s acclaimed contemporary visual art organisation, is at a challenging yet exciting point in its 40 year history. After temporary closure in response to funding cuts, the organisation has transformed the way it works. In place of being a gallery with a rolling programme of exhibitions Spacex now produces projects in collaboration with a wide range of partners.
