Exhibition: Now We Have Met

Now We Have Met  –  An exhibition of work by Naomi Gilby

The latest exhibition at Beeston’s Basement Arts Project opens with a preview on Friday evening (16 June 2017) in the cellar of Bruce and Debs Davies terraced house.

‘Now We Have Met’ is a project by Naomi Gilby that takes as its central premise a plethora of anonymous handwritten poetry, collected over many years and only ever read by the artist; until now. This project is about interactions and connections both physical and virtual, the difference between place and space, and how people connect over subject matter.

Through installation, sound and performance ‘Now We Have Met’ will use the intimate domestic environment of BasementArtsProject as a space for reflection and communion; a place in which old memories can be recalled and new ones created. Gilby’s practice is one of social engagement that encourages the building of relationships between people and place through the lens of her artwork.

The exhibition will be open as follows:

  • Friday 16 June: 7:30-9:30pm
  • Saturday 17 June: 2–4pm
  • Sunday 18 June 2–4pm
  • Monday 19 June: 11am-2pm
  • Saturday 24 June: 2–4pm
  • Sunday 25 June: 2–4pm
  • Monday 26 June: 11am-2pm
  • And then by appointment until 17 July

There will also be a lunchtime discussion with the artist on Thursday 29 June 12:30-2:30pm (booking essential).
