Exhibitions
flyingleaps: Art on the Streets
Firstsite, Colchester, is delighted to announce a group exhibition featuring posters by eight artists: Magda Archer, Dolores De Sade, Jeremy Deller, Dr. D, Heath Kane, kennardphillips, Oddly Head, Simon Roberts and Mark Titchner.
Staged in collaboration with flyingleaps, the itinerant organisation that stages artistic interventions in public places, the presentation is comprised of poster works that have been created in response to contemporary politics, events and ideas.
Initially installed on street sites, this display will be shown inside Firstsite’s building pasted billboard-style along the gallery’s corridor walls. At a time when image-led content and advertising is accessible via multiple technologies, the posters invite the viewer to consider the role that artists and visual activism can play in our everyday experience, highlighting the power of images to change, challenge and empower shared beliefs.
