Movement & Perception

QUAD Extra Gallery Spaces

13th December 2014 – 8th February 2015 


Artists: Kylie Benjamin, Rob Burton, GÂST, Steven Ingman, Flora Kay, Melissa Sheffield, Pierce Starre and Ned Wilson    


Crop Up Gallery, collaborating with QUAD for the first time, are a student-run curatorial team based at the University of Nottingham. Taking their enterprising spirit out of their home city, the team has created a project that celebrates the Midlands through both its artists and subject matter.  


Movement & Perception is an exhibition that holds indeterminacy at its heart, with Crop Up providing each artist with a set of coordinates on a map and an open invitation to explore that area. The artworks on display present each artist's reaction to their own journey, as this show examines our ability to map the world around us, venture through it and describe that experience.  


Displaying new work produced by regional artists in response to this brief, Movement & Perception also seeks to document the means through which we navigate the subjective and varying natures of human experience. The exhibition invites viewers to actively work their way through the display in QUAD's Extra Gallery Spaces.  


Movement & Perception is curated and produced by Crop Up, a curatorial collective and development programme of Nottingham University.
