Thanks to Katie Rutherford, director of Untitled Gallery in Manchester, UK, I’ve got some photos of the participatory component of Give Thanks to share with you. The public was invited to make drawings on paper pennant flags in response to the question, “What are you grateful for?” I love the mix of children’s scribbles and grown-ups’ renderings.

I’m very excited to present a new text-based installation made of ribbon and fabric, and relating to gratitude, at this exhibition-within-an-exhibition.

Enter a Small Room Arranged for this Purpose is a series of three exhibitions in Project Space Leeds’ version of Untitled Gallery, created for Peering Sideways, a new exhibition and programme of events at PSL. This ambitious project brings together artists’ groups from around the UK (London, Manchester, Wakefield).

The project also aims to expand the networks of the participating artists and groups, sparking new relationships and collaborations. The project comprises three separate group shows running concurrently, with some of the work developing in the space over the course of the project.
