Exhibition: Roadside Museum

Located in a terraced family house in Beeston, Basement Arts Project presents its latest exhibition over the next two weekends.

Curators Gordon Culshaw and John O’Hare set out to investigate the effect of time and biological and chemical decay on artworks.

Artists elected to have their work buried in a field at a depth of six feet on a farm in Lancashire for 12 months prior to exhibiting. Towards the end of 2014 the site was excavated and the works were exhumed to allow the curators and artists the opportunity to further develop their ideas. The resultant Roadside Museum exhibition takes both the objects and documentation of the excavation, and looks at the changes brought about through the process of accelerated decay.

The show previews on Friday 8 May from 7:30pm and then is open on Saturday,9, Sunday 10, Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 from 2-4pm each day.
