Artist-run contemporary art gallery

Touch Curated by Mel Robson and Suzi Lyon

The exhibition TOUCH explores ideas of process and practice in contemporary art. It aims to explore the nexus between artist and audience, maker and viewer, through community engagement in the making and exhibiting of many hundreds of small clay pinch pots.

In this exhibition, the audience are invited to collaborate with the artists, as ceramicists Mel Robson and Suzi Lyon curate a series of happenings in the gallery and throughout the community.

The immediately tactile nature of clay, and its ability to be easily formed and manipulated, makes it a democratic material that is being used to shift the focus away from the artists themselves and onto the process of making as a means of discovery, expression and interactive engagement.
