East Meets West 2.0 presents sixteen artists based within the Midlands, or those who have graduated from a Midlands-based University in the past three years. Selected via an open call asking for responses relating to ‘Leisure’ – a core theme explored in Doug Fishbone’s Leisure Land Golf– the resulting works offer a fascinating and diverse collection of interpretations, from projects delving into drinking culture, to a sensitive portrait of a young Shetland Island resident’s use of his leisure time. 

Selected by a panel of regional experts, the work will tour to Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery in partnership with GRAIN Projects, Birmingham, while also receiving a one-to-one professional development session from industry professionals.
