Curated by Ian Hartshorne and Sean Kaye for Teaching Painting.

Fully Awake 6.6 is the final show of a six-part intergenerational cycle of exhibitions involving academics, artists and art educators in the UK. In each version of the show, several artists are invited to submit a piece of work to be included in an exhibition. In addition to submitting a piece of work themselves, the artists are also asked to invite two ‘guests’ (each of whom will also submit work for exhibition) with the following conditions: one must be an artist that they have been taught by; and one must be an artist that they have taught. This unorthodox invitational approach creates unexpected fluid networks through collaborations and the exhibitions are intended to reveal these.

Open at Holden Gallery Monday – Friday, 12 noon – 6pm.
