Art at the ARB are expanding their exhibition activities and have created Sideshow! These are small exhibitions by staff, academics and students who are based in the Alison Richard Building, as well as by invited artists working in connection with conferences held in the ARB. They take place in the atrium and seminar rooms SG1&SG2 on the ground floor of the Alison Richard Building. Accessibility for visitors will vary due to the use of the rooms, please contact us if you wish to visit at a particular time.

The first of the Sideshows consists of works selected to accompany the conference Objects in Motion: Material Culture in Transition, taking place from 18-20 June 2015. Jane Watt is exhibiting cyanotype prints in the seminar rooms until 4 September and has her ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’ caravan stationed on the Sidgwick Site from 18-19 June. Christopher McHugh is showing ceramic works in the atrium.

From 8-10 July the conference Sound Studies: Art, Experience, Politics will be accompanied by a sound installation by Caitlin Shepherd, situated in the atrium.
