The Norman Rea Gallery invites you to their 2017 Summer Exhibition: Myths.
The exhibition explores individual ideas of myths, considering that today the term “Myths” can mean any number of things, such as legendary stories, an imaginary thing, a person or a false belief. Traditional connotations of the theme are explored thorough works on fairytales, magical creatures and folk narratives. However, myths do not only signify pure fiction, but also relevant social and political topics that are at many times connected to the media.
We wanted to ask: What do myths mean to you? What do they signify in our times?
It is set to be a visually exciting and intriguing exhibition with artworks created by students of the University and wider community, There will be a number of pieces in different medias: from digitised projections to paintings, from photography to sculpture.
Artists featuring in our exhibition include Rhian Cooke, Jasper Bailey, Jade Jenkinson, Indianna Tatman, and Anthony Whitfield.
Join us at 8pm on Sunday 4th June for an evening of art, music from Jess Phillips and FREE Pimm’s!
An event created by members of the curatorial team: Jessica Jenkinson, Laura Singleton, Millie Dellamuro, Charlotte Mansfield, Sophie Sharpe, Tomi Azaria von Bredow, Petra Biro.
