NEXUS: Meetings at the Edge

NEXUS: Meetings at the Edge closed at Kirkcaldy Galleries, Fife, on 10 June 2018. It will re-open at Ruthin Craft Centre, Wales, on 29 September 2018, running until 18 November.

This exhibition looks at some of the ways in which 21st-century artists and makers are changing preconceptions about their art forms.

Jewellery, silversmithing, textiles and ceramics all have long histories and deep-rooted traditions behind them. Today their familiar, often restricting, boundaries are being expanded by makers taking leaps of imagination and devising fresh approaches to the way they work.

The exhibitors in Nexus are linked by great technical skill, a capacity for free-thinking and confidence in their ideas. However, each has found their own way of extending the boundaries of their art form.

Nexus celebrates the unexpected. None of the work in this exhibition may be quite what it seems…

Curated by Dr Elizabeth Goring for Fife Contemporary in collaboration with Ruthin Craft Centre, Wales, it features 20 artists from around Britain and Ireland.
