Transition is an opportunity for artists, or artist groups, to use the gallery space to consider how a series of works is developing or to try out ideas for an installation or interactive project. Transition gives artists the time and space to take ideas forward in a public environment, aiming to explore conceptual and practical issues, without the constraints of presenting a finalised exhibition. Artists can challenge their practice and take risks concerning their usual working techniques. It offers visitors the chance to see work in a state of flux, meet the artists and discuss the work.
