Free Entry

The Rising Sun Arts Centre presents an ensemble of staff and students from the Reading School of Art, including Taniya Dharani, Rachel Garfield, Tina Jenkins, Jay Karadia, Wendy McLean, Katy Pike, Bea Ridge, Holly Sandford and Linda Stupart, curated by Simone Hesselberg.

Out of Bounds challenges the hierarchy of the art world by inviting staff and students to display work alongside one another.

The Salon positions the artists as co-practitioners, acting as a research unit to develop evolving multidisciplinary practices, thereby breaking down the walls of the art school.

Intertwining thematically, the work in the show explores the body and form, narrative and the physicality of mark making through a vibrant range of performance, video, sculpture and painting.

Situated at The Rising Arts Centre, the Salon bridges the gap between ‘town and gown' by remaining open and welcoming to the community at large, with contemporary art made accessible to all. The venue will recreate the spirit of the Salon that brings people together socially to enjoy art and culture while exploring the way in which we encounter and consume art in a contemporary society.
