    Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


    30 October 2015 - 20 January 2016
    Choices was a solo exhibition by British artist Alex Roberts. The launch of the evolving exhibition coincided with Art Weekender - Bristol & Bath.

    With our present, fleeting, selfie-obsessed, virtual-curated society we are often left questioning, who are we? Who are they? How do others know us or we others? Are we who we say we are? What’s next? Questions are set against our news coverage backdrop of constant suffering images and reports, from a world seemingly detached from the simplicity of human closeness and reverence of life, why?

    Choices pursued to reveal what remains dormant, under-exposed, unresolved, or not given time for reflection within us, and amongst our momentary culture. A collection of works that address the concerns of mid-encounters, decision-making, transitory states and contrasting human conditions, that often reside side by side via the intimate and immediate medium of paint.

    The premise of this exhibition proposed a chain of perspectives that challenged the artwork’s subject, the viewer, the artist, and the resonance that follows.

    Art Weekender - Bristol & Bath is produced by Situations in partnership with over 30 arts venues, artist-led groups and arts producers. It is a three-day celebration of the visual arts across the two cities.
