The Museum Box Project: Something of Place and Library of Pilgrimages

Sat 9 Sep- Sat 4 Nov
Launch: 12-2pm Sat 9 Sep
Exhibition opening times 10am-4pm Monday to Friday 10am-2pm Saturdays Closed Sundays
These two exhibitions were created by Space Place Practice, a collective group of multidisciplinary practitioners who share an interest in researching the wider aspects of ‘landscape’.
In the Main Gallery the Museum Box Project: Something of Place takes disused Natural History Museum storage boxes as a starting point for each member of the group to create new artworks.
The Library of Pilgrimages in our ground floor Clerks Room Gallery is a collaboration of ‘mini-installations’. Within the small confines of a foolscap filing box, the artists explore interactions with a space or a place. Each one records how we endow locations with special responses and recognises how a place may be integrated into our own ‘inner’ landscape.
To coincide with the Launch Event and Explore Art Trowbridge there will also be an artist-led walk along the River Biss in Trowbridge. See the listing on Explore Art Trowbridge, and find full details of All Rivers Flow to the Sea. River Biss Art Walk, here.
