The Byron Cinema in Hucknall is playing host to a new exhibition starring the talents of contemporary artists and film-makers.
The exhibition entitled Breaking the Fourth Wall will feature painting, installation, sculpture and film and has been put together by the Fresh Meat Collective,
The nine-strong collective was founded in February this year and is composed of Loughborough University graduates, artists in residence, commercial artists, workshop leaders and teachers. Artist Andy Allen (24), of Hucknall, is curating the exhibition: “The space showcases a variety of artists from diverse backgrounds and at different points in their careers. The Byron cinema was my cinema when I was a lad. I met some of the Byron team at the Christmas market last year and it evolved from there. The building is extremely interesting. From a curatorial point of view this is something completely different.
“The work exhibited will interact with the unusual interior of the cinema, breaking away from a traditional gallery setting and allowing the artists’ to really engage with this unconventional space. In the future we hope to be working in Cornwall and Mansfield where some of the other artists are based.”
The exhibition will be open all day to the public on on Saturday 29th November, from 10am to 10pm, with a party from 6pm, a film screening at 8pm and live music from rock group The Field Studies.
