Art Show: Project Art Works: Ignition – the Exhibition ** until 27 Feb 2022 ** Hastings Contemporary, Hastings

Hastings Contemporary is delighted to welcome Hastings artist collective Project Art Works back to the gallery this autumn.

Ignition began as a residency in the main gallery space at Hastings Contemporary during the last national lockdown, with artists working in the temporary studio while the building was closed to visitors. Ignition – The Exhibition will feature works made during this innovative intervention as well as works from the Project Art Works archive.

Project Art Works studios provide the conditions for a broad range of autonomous and collaborative practices with neurodivergent artists, who take part on their own terms. The collective has been nominated for this year’s Turner Prize. CEO and Artist Director of Project Art Works Kate Adams says:

‘We are thrilled that the contribution neurodivergent artists make to cultural life has been recognised by the Turner Prize curatorial team. Hosting our exhibition at Hastings Contemporary gives people the opportunity to see the work made in our residency earlier this year and join in our celebration of this nomination. We have collaborated with Hastings Contemporary for a number of years, so it’s wonderful to have them as hosts of this exhibition.’

Hastings Contemporary Director Liz Gilmore says:

‘This exhibition celebrates the incredible and dynamic contribution of neurominorities to art and society and reflects the commitment and ambitions of Hastings Contemporary to be a cultural hub for Hastings.’

Ignition- The Exhibition will run concurrently with Project Art Works’s Turner Prize nomination installation at Herbert Art Gallery & Museum in Coventry, City of Culture 2021.
