IN ANOTHER PLACE
10 billboards, 10 places, 6 weeks…
21 May–3 July 2018
Starting on the 21 May 2018, In Another Place is a region-wide collaboration of ten venues with one collective aim: showing new art to new audiences.
A variety of arts organisations across the East Midlands have commissioned artists to create original artworks to be displayed on billboards across the region. From Northampton to Gainsborough, locations include industrial estates and high streets to residential areas and shopping centre car parks.
In Another Place is encouraging members of the public who feel inspired by their local billboard to seek out others across the region. An interactive map at InAnotherPlace.co.uk is available to help people to trace their routes between billboards and organisations.
In collaboration with Contemporary Visual Arts Network East Midlands, the following organisations are participating in the project:
Attenborough Arts Centre | Amartey Golding
Backlit | Ryan Heath
Gunby Hall | CommonAs
Leicester Print Workshop | Theo Miller
New Art Exchange | Zanele Muholi
NN Contemporary Art | Dylan Fox, Freee art collective, Sarah Taylor Silverwood
Primary | Melanie Jackson
QUAD | Joey Holder
The Collection | Mandy Lee Jandrell
UK Young Artists | Charlie Birtles
About NN’s Billboards
For In Another Place NN presents three artworks for two weeks each on a billboard on St James Mill Road, Northampton, NN5 5JW.
Dylan Fox’s work explores his experiences of transitioning gender, spanning printed matter, sound, found objects, moving image and the dialogical. Dylan’s billboard will be live from 23 May–5 June 2018.
Freee Art Collective produces slogans, billboards and publications that challenge the commercial and bureaucratic colonisation of the public sphere of opinion formation.
Sarah Taylor Silverwood’s image willact as a GIANT small ad asking artists to become part of an exhibition whilst simultaneously advertising the show and being an artwork in its own right.
Our billboard aims to raise awareness of transgender issues, stimulate discussions, advertise an artist opportunity and promote NN Contemporary Art. Each of the artist’s billboards will be announced with a special edition of NN’s newsletter. You can sign up here.
