During October join us in the Project Space to celebrate Near Holme, Call Your Home Poetic, a public art commission for Middleton, Milton Keynes.
In 2017 artist Bettina Furnée was commissioned to lead the project and began by inviting all residents of the Claridge Park area to meet with her and hear her ideas. Participants were guided through a shared process to create their own poetic and personal house plaque, unique to their family but forming a collective language and theme with their neighbours and the surrounding community.
This exhibition invites you into the project as it nears completion, to see and hear the experiences of the residents through video, sound, images, interviews, and a critical text written by curator Fiona Boundy.
All are welcome to enjoy the exhibition, and to join us on the opening night on Thursday 4 October from 6-8pm. There will also be a special In Conversation event with Bettina Furnée and Fiona Boundy on Thursday 18 October from 7pm.
This project was commissioned by MK Gallery on behalf of Broughton and Milton Keynes Village Parish Council and Milton Keynes Council.
