Exhibition - "Nothing is As Valuable as You"
‘Nothing Is As Valuable As You’ brings together a group of artists whose practices use three-dimensional materials to create their work. Wide ranging in conceptual theory, what brings these works together is the focus on craft and materiality to share their message. Curated by Talia Smith, the exhibition includes artists Ali Noble, Elle van Uden, Francesca Zak, Luke O’Connor, Sarah Eddowes, Yvette Hamilton, Paula de Prado and Hannah McKellar.
