White Room Gallery 001: Sense of Place
Tickets: Free entry
Free entry launch evening: Sunday 27th January // 7pm
Over the past 20 years, Neepsend and Kelham Island have seen vast regeneration as industrial abandoned buildings have had a new lease of life pumped into them making the area a hub of alternative and creative activity in Sheffield.
At the heart is Yellow Arch Studios, home to a live venue, rehearsal spaces, recording studio and now introducing the White Room Gallery. Complete with high ceilings & vast skylit walls, this once industrious space has now been repurposed into our very own performance and exhibition space for the whole Sheffield community – To celebrate we have teamed up with curator Bridget Murray and a whole host of contemporary artists to create a very special exhibition responding to the theme of place, spaces and the outdoor world.
In the wake of serious warnings from the latest UN report on climate change, Sense of Place brings together a collection of artworks responding to the theme of place, spaces and the outdoor world. The works consider, examine or reflect upon this subject matter, ranging from modern day relationships with the natural world to the political uncertainties we are facing across the globe, manifesting in the continual displacement of people through warfare and environmental disasters.
