After many months of discussion, meetings, researching and drawing, my part of the Thomas Nashe project was wrapped up in February. We ran a show over 2 weeks, with the drawings on display, along with a large whiteboard slideshow. For the run I created prints, bookmarks and badges which were left on the tables with an honesty box. The opening was small but very successful, with a host of academics from the English and History departments, and a few artists. It was wonderful to have a chance to hear feedback and have discussions about the images.
The space in which the exhibition took place is not normally an arts space, but a large reception area of an engineering and science building. It was great to be able to use an unusual space, and have discussion with people not used to seeing art projects as they enter their place of work or study. It was more like an academic conference, than an art exhibition, which was a new venture for me and one I really enjoyed. It was great to take the work out of a gallery setting and play with its potential in different arenas.
