CREATIVE EXCHANGE AT EASTSIDE ARTS FESTIVAL, 20th Aug - 5th Sept 2015


  • Creative Exchange 310 Newtownards Rd Belfast, BT4 1HE United Kingdom

DEGREES OF SEPARATION is the showcase exhibition hosted by Creative Exchange Studios as part of the Eastside Arts Festival. The content of the exhibition is a play on the theory that everyone and everything can be connected in 6 or fewer steps. This is significant within a city like Belfast and even more prevalent within East Belfast. In curating the exhibition, artist Deirdre Robb asked the artists to respond to this concept through their own practice, with the resulting show encompassing video, painting, photography, installation and projections. Participating artists include, Stephen Millar, Lesley Cherry, Ruth Gonsalves Moore, Ray Duncan, David Fox, Paul Moore, Heather Wilson, Alice Clarke, Ciara O'Malley,... Deirdre Robb & George Robb.

We would also like to thank Portview Trade Centre for sponsoring us through the use of the Engine Room space at Portview Trade Centre, Eastsde Arts Festival, BlackSheep Printers, Golden Thread Gallery, Handy Tool Box and to the Over The Hill Music Collective who will be performing on the opening night.

In addition to the exhibition, Creative Exchange are also hosting a series of artist talks, including a Show & Tell event in association with Visual Artists Ireland.
