A new venue will be announced shortly. UNIT24 Gallery, the original venue, has pulled out last minute leaving organisers scrambling for a new venue.
Clearly, the main issue at hand is the Gallery’s fear of exhibiting controversial artwork.
Unit24 now joins a long list of “supporters of the arts” which want art that is uncontroversial even though the very purpose of good art is to break taboos and challenge the status quo.
Irrespective of their cowardice, the show will go on.
Per our previous announcement, shortlisted artists will exhibit works which will be judged by an international Selection Panel including Anda Rottenberg, Sarah Maple, Deeyah and Nick Cohen.
Please watch this space for updates and details of the new venue.
