(its all) TROPICAL presents £1 FISH a pop-up exhibition to be held on 12th December at S1 Artspace, Sheffield. The premise for the exhibition derives from the famous quote by William Morris ‘What business have we with art at all unless all can share it?’. We want to create a platform where art is accessible to all and inexpensive to purchase.
For £1 Fish, we are asking artists to make a work with the production value of £1 and with an artist fee of £1. The work will be ‘Art for the People’ in its purest form. Due to the restraints on production costs and the restraints on the tools that the artist is able to use, we hope to encourage the artist to think outside of their everyday practice and allow them to play with lesser used materials in an unrestrained manner.
At the end of the exhibition, there will be an auction, where well-known artists work will be auctioned anonymously alongside lesser known artists work to encourage a sense of autonomy from the usual gallery/artist relationship.
We invite you to join us on 12th December 2014 at 7.00pm for the opening of the exhibition, followed by the auction.
