There is no such thing as an uninteresting subject; the only thing that can exist is an uninterested person. Gilbert Keith Chesterton
Many of the most engaging works of art are born of an artist’s fascination with a subject, concept or material that others might overlook.
For this exhibition, we are interested in working with artists in all disciplines who are drawn to what other people might initially deem to be dull – artists who notice and perceive things in ordinary and everyday places, things, materials or situations that other people don’t, for example.
In entitling our exhibition Dull, we hope to encourage viewers to rethink this commonly used term. Who decides what is dull or interesting? The term ‘dull’ has a number of meanings and connotations; we would like to invite artists to consider and interpret it in their own way, to produce work that challenges preconceptions and engages the viewer.
This exhibition will be and curated by Sightlines Projects in collaboration with Beth Biddiss.
Exhibition dates: 25 May – 9 June 2019
