Future Refrains

Exhibition - Past

18th Sept - 27th Oct 2017

An exhibition to showcase collaborative practice


Future Refrains marks the culmination of a year-long Peer Sessions project on collaborative practice funded by Arts Council England. The exhibition features new work commissioned by Peer Sessions; three emerging Peer Sessions artists were invited to select a partner artist with whom to collaborate. The six artists met in developmental Peer Sessions workshops during the formative stages, to provide opportunities for dialogue, cross-fertilisation of ideas and feedback as the commissioned works evolved.


The 3 collaborative artist pairs:

Peer Sessions member Alicja Rogalska chose to work with Daniel Dressel
Peer Sessions member Anita Delaney chose to work with Simon Gerrard
Peer Sessions member James Ferris chose to work with Paula Linke

The exhibition will also feature new works by Adam Chodzko & Lindsay Seers who have been active as guest moderators in recent Peer Sessions crit groups.
