Maia Conran: Here is the Yard
Grand Union
29 March – 10 May 2014

Opening Friday 28 March 2014, 6-8pm

Grand Union is proud to introduce Here is the Yard, a solo exhibition of new work by emerging artist Maia Conran. The exhibition presents three works that transform short video recordings of brief moments filmed, or found by the artist, into a large scale panorama, a sculptural sound installation and a discrete video work.

Conran’s artistic practice moves between old and new media, from film to computer animation and from video to sculpture or performance. She has a fascination with the stage and screen, and these thresholds can be seen as a motif throughout her work.

A new publication featuring contributions by Steven Ball (artist and research fellow at Central St. Martins, London) and Gil Leung (writer, artist, curator and Head of Programming, LUX, London), will be available from Grand Union in April.

See our website for details.

Haze and Fog

Exhibition Launch
Friday 20 September, 6–8pm
Eastside Projects, 86 Heath Mill Lane, Birmingham, B9 4AR

Everyone is welcome at the launch of ‘Haze and Fog’ a solo exhibition by Cao Fei in the main gallery, ‘Dear Lynda’ in the second gallery and ‘A Demonstration of Possibilities’ in Flatfile. Exhibitions continue until 16 November.

‘Haze and Fog’ is a new type of zombie movie set in modern China. The film will explore how the collective consciousness of people living in the time of what the artist calls “magical metropolises” emerges from seemingly tedious, mundane, day-to-day life.

In the Second Gallery we present ‘Dear Lynda…’, an international touring exhibition that examines the importance of maverick British curator, writer, art historian and patron Lynda Morris.

Sophie Bullock, Freya Dooley and Sebastian Jefford, GO West resident artists collaborate on ‘A Demonstration of Possibilities’ the latest iteration of Flatfile, a plan-chest sited permanently within the gallery.

Flatfile: A Demonstration of Possibilities
21 September – 16 November 2013
Preview Friday 20 September, 6–8pm
Flatfile, Eastside Projects, 86 Heath Mill Lane, Birmingham, B9 4AR

Eastside Projects presents A Demonstration of Possibilities, an exhibition by Sophie Bullock, Freya Dooley and Sebastian Jefford in Flatfile, a plan-chest sited permanently within the gallery.

A Demonstration of Possibilities is a framework that is open to movement and alteration. In it Flatfile is converted into a growing and interactive toolbox where works appear as instructional or functional but for potentially unknowable or absurd uses.

For A Demonstration of Possibilities Sophie, Freya and Sebastian will present a collaboratively-developed whole work made of video, text and sculptural components, in which they respectively specialise.

Throughout September Sophie, Freya and Sebastian will undertake GO West, an ESP residency at The New Art Gallery Walsall. GO West gives artists from Spike Island Associates (Bristol), ESP (Eastside Projects, Birmingham) and WARP (G39, Cardiff) time and space to develop new ideas, connections and networks by spending time working together.

This is the fifth iteration of Flatfile, a project initiated as a platform for participants to make new connections through the development of new work.
