STEPHANIE MISA

GRANDSTAND
Gymnasium Gallery,
Berwick Upon Tweed, UK
8 Mar – 3 May 2014

Grandstand is Stephanie Misa's first solo show in the UK.

Grandstand is conceived as a site, a stage set for discussion. The installation activates the Gymnasium Gallery as a democratic forum with aim of engaging the public into seeing art as political, as performative, and as participatory.

Throughout the exhibition local artists, performers and groups will be invited to use the installation for meetings, performances or discussion – with the proviso that the events are open to all members of the public.

A sound piece and map accompany the Grandstand that explores the artist’s search for the ‘local’ through seemingly innocuous objects around Berwick Upon Tweed.
