Platform A Gallery has developed relationships with a number of artists who have established and developed their practice through an exploration of a variety of materials. Whether through paint, steel or plastic, these artists have investigated artistic concerns and honed their ideas in diverse ways. MATERIALS brings together and surveys a selection of objects that have been displayed in the gallery space over a number of years in different exhibitions.
The title of the exhibition draws attention to the consideration given to material qualities and assists in enabling the viewer to identify how each artist informs each work and discover any meaning that may be embedded in particular materials.
MATERIALS opened on the 27th September as part of the Middlesbrough Art Weekender and will run for 4 weeks.
