This exhibition Present Tense brings together work by four artists in ‘a space’ arts 2023 ‘Turning Point’ Bursary programme:

Present Tense is a new exhibition bringing together work by four artists in the ‘a space’ arts 2023 Turning Point Bursary programme: Suna Imre, Carrie Mason, Joshua Raffell and Alec Stevens.

Over the last six months, the artists have undertaken a period of self-led artistic experimentation, development and risk-taking to push beyond existing boundaries within their practices and yield new ways of working. The Turning Point programme embraces ‘open ends’, creating valuable time and space for the development of artistic practice without the pressure to produce specific outcomes or ‘finished’ artwork.

Present Tense is an exhibition of the artists’ work in the present moment, celebrating a playful and experimental approach to practice whilst also acknowledging that it can, at times, be tense.

This event is the opportunity to explore the exhibition up close and meet the artists behind the works. You can enjoy an exclusive artist-led tour of the exhibition, as the artists lead you around the gallery spaces and share insights into their experiences of the Turning Point Bursary and processes behind the works.

Present Tense will be on display at God’s House Tower from Friday 26th January – Sunday 3rd March 2023.

Content Warning: This exhibition contains artworks that include nudity and sexually explicit images.
