About Making Art Work:
Taking place across 2020, the project will see over 40 artists create new works that reinforce the importance of creative labour in a time when the cultural and economic value of art has been diminished. Drawing from the politicised language of our current crisis, each artist has been asked to respond to the provocations posed by four curatorial pillars; Unprecedented TimesIndustrial ActionsPermanent Revolution, and Relief Measures.

Artists

Mia Boe, Hannah Brontë, Michael Candy, Emil Cañita, Merinda Davies, Chantal Fraser, Natalya Hughes, Peter Kozak, Archie Moore, Shandy, David Spooner, Grant Stevens, and Tyza Stewart.
