Commonplace is an exhibition of collaborative drawing projects by Beth George, Michael Chapman and others. The drawings explore the relationships between empathy, embodiment, memory and architectural space and will be undertaken in the gallery space over the course of the exhibition.
Currently lecturing into UON’s School of Architecture and Built Environment, Michael Chapman (Professor) and Beth George (Senior Lecturer) have worked collaboratively on interdisciplinary art-architecture projects that explore the notion of creative practice as a research.
The gallery will become an interactive atelier space with workshops, discussions and an opportunity to observe research in real time and space over the summer months. We will conclude the exhibition with a closing event at the University Gallery on Thursday 19 MARCH from 5:30pm.
