Strike Site is an exhibition curated by Sacha Craddock which attempts to stage a site that mirrors the contradictory but nonetheless palpable sense of the temporary that comes with an exhibition of art. Craddock is keen that the temporary nature of the gallery exhibition manages to allude to the actual, to where settlement and control produce an equal and palpable sense of insecurity. Previously supported and exhibited at Pi Artworks London, this second manifestation will work closely with the Nottingham Refugee Forum to explore notions of displacement, movement, freedom, and barriers.

 

Featuring work by Ana Čvorović, Anna Fasshauer, Jack Killick, Brian Griffiths, Siobhán Hapaska and Alice Hartley.
