1st - 4th July, Harbour Arm Gallery, Margate
In the summer of 2011 AirSpace Studio artists, Rednile ‘and friends’ will be mirroring the traditional ‘Potter’s Holiday,’ which saw large groups of Stokies heading for the seaside for their annual 2 week holiday. The 13 artists will descend on the Seaside Town of Margate for Kiss Me Quick an exhibition to be held at the in Margate Harbour Arm Gallery.
The artists have made work in response to the town, and, in the light of rising fuel prices putting foreign travel out of the reach of many people, will be considering the possible resurgence in popularity of the British Seaside Holiday. With the opening of Turner Contemporary in April as a backdrop, the artists will explore whether a new art space can aid the rebirth of this beautiful Victorian resort through an exhibition and a series of beach based interventions and events.
