What's it about?

The second phase to this year’s Shape Arts Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary (ARMB) – Winners Exhibition “Oliver MacDonald – Dog Basket Baboon” will be hosted by Artlink, Hull from 20th May to 1st July 2017. It is the first time the ARMB show has been exhibited outside of London. A series of events will accompany the exhibitions. The Preview Night for this is 19th May 2017, starting at 6pm and finishing at 8pm.

Following his three month Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary residency at Turner Contemporary, Margate, Artlink and Shape Arts are delighted to present Oliver MacDonald’s solo exhibition, ‘Dog Basket Baboon’. Traditionally trained as a willow weaver, Oliver explores traditional craft through a conceptual lens, utilising word play and layers of reference to often absurd and humorous ends. This exhibition presents recent works alongside an installation in which audiences are invited to immerse themselves in Oliver’s pseudo-studio.’

Open Invite – Drinks Tokens for City of Culture branded wine are handed out on the door.

Resident Square Peg photographer – Jerome Whittingham and blogger Michelle Dee will be also attending. However, we welcome all amateur bloggers and photographers!
