• Fully Awake, Forthcoming

      Harris, Simon J. (House for an Art Lover, 2017-11-03)
      House for an Art Lover is pleased to present Fully Awake, a group exhibition featuring work by over 30 artists that celebrates the intergenerational effects of teaching painting. Curated by Ian Hartshorne and Sean Kaye the show invites several artists to submit a piece of work, as well as invite two ‘guest’ artists to be presented alongside them; an artist that they have been taught by, and an artist that they have taught. This unorthodox approach creates engaging and surprising relationships between those participating. Fully Awake is a five part cycle of exhibitions. This is the second iteration, the first being presented in Leeds earlier this year. The cycle of shows eschews thematic, aesthetic or theoretical concerns but aims to reveal instead much deeper levels of incidental human, personal, psychological connections and occasional rejections between student and teacher.
