  • 'Nawki'
  • 13 July 2017, 6.30pm
  • Focal Point Gallery

NAWKI or ‘not as we know it’ initiated last year by 12ø collective began with the intention to experiment with the art fair model, each iteration shifting its focus to a different framework with a selection of arts organisation/spaces across the UK invited to participate, resulting in a cross organisation collaborative outcome. ​ This year the fair will take the form of an artist film screening, experimenting with a platform specifically for digital, time-based works, where the shows constraints are responsive to the medium, becoming primarily durational, opposed to physical.

Each organisation is contributing a segment made up of digital and video work by selected artists that will be compiled to make a two hour long showcase, with each slot as the organisation's respective ‘exhibition’.

The resulting video will be screened simultaneously, at every participating space throughout the UK on the 13th July starting at 6.30pm. ​ Nawki will be screened at Focal Point Gallery as part of our current exhibition 'Maximum Overdrive', including work by Lucy Woodhouse.

Other participating organisations include:

CBS Gallery & Studios, Eastside Projects ESP, East Bristol Contemporary, HUTT, Ladette Space, Limbo Limbo, serf, SPUR and The White Pube.
