“Whether physical, social, cultural, or philosophical, the concept of “space” has obsessed humankind for centuries. Within the field of visual art, an interest in space has been a prominent thread in the generation of creators emergent from the 1970s through to the 1980s. The artists assembled in This Place in Time have each invested in the boundless, definition-evading idea of “space”. Not only does the content of these works focus on unpicking the attendant theme, but also the variety of media on view allow audience members to question how subjectivity plays out in the space defined by the plane of the page, the surface of a sculpture, and the interstitial areas between.”
“Queen West Art Crawl”
