Collaborative Research Group (CRG) is an 18-month programme, which brings together six arts practitioners who are interested in collaborative working and the pluralities of contemporary visual arts practice. Functioning as both a complimentary and alternative form of higher arts education, CRG operates through an open and discursive approach to research-led working. CRG is made up of Áine Belton, Dom Elsner, Louisa Love, Alex Parry, Trish Scott and Charley Vines. It is founded and co-ordinated by artist and curator Toby Huddlestone.

Charley Vines - Cheap Thrills - Opening Friday 31st Jan

PREVIEW: FRI 31 JAN. 18:00 – 20:00 There is something rewarding in existing, and producing, cheaply. Everybody loves a bargain. Using site as subject, Cheap Thrills come out of the repetitions, observations and habits of the studio and its locale. Both pedestrian and familiar, a study of these day-to-day rhythms also presents the opportunity to see the minutia, perhaps even the exotic. The paintings show attempts to refine and reduce, refine and expand.They are frustrated and indulgent – a little playful. Experimental objects suggest tongue-in-cheek value. Spinning disco-teeth, dancing boots - they activate the paintings, reminding them to reject the constraints of their medium. Cheap Thrills is an exercise in the processes leading towards an exhibition. The processes of experiencing and deconstructing the subject. The processes of painting towards an end.

Curated by Áine Belton

Featuring:
Conor Mary Foy, Vincci Huang, Louisa Love, Steven Maybury, Emrys Plant,
Holly Skinner, Clare Smith, Charley Vines and Jennifer Wright

Come As You Go is an exhibition about the use of space and materials inspired by geographical and temporal displacement. It is an open dialogue between the curator, artists and most importantly the audience. The title is recognition of how changes can take place, subtly overlapping and blending in with each other. It is about knowing and being able to recognize the many developments that circulate in daily life. At the center of each of these works is a sense of awareness of environment seen through materials and installation. Crate acts as a host site for these works that are comfortably unhinged. Come As You Go is about ideas, spaces and people in flux.
