A quick review and critique of a small exhibition curated by one of my senior tutors

at Huddersfield University Dr Liam Devlin.

The show also features work by two of our other lectures and other artists

That should save me the bother of writing info which is available on line

Interesting exhibition,very varied a mixture of Photography and moving images

and also a dance troupe performed at the opening

Contemporary dance does not do it for me (It always reminds me of “Legz Akimbo” from the BBC’s The league of gentlemen  ) but if you are interested in that sort of thing they will be  doing a workshop on  Thursday 27 April 2-5pm

and performing on the final day of the exhibition 4th may .

A good turn out and some interesting work a few photos below from the event

The Masses 😉

I could go on about my views of the work but as art is always subjective….

my advice really is to go see it for yourself

Huddersfield s art gallery contains some brilliant art works and is housed in a fantastic art deco building worth seeing in it’s own rightOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
