The Rocket Artists’ gallery take-over is an evolving exploration of the relationships between artists, audiences and gallery space. This 7-week exhibition invites you to choose from expanding weekly menus of art and activity, led by artists with diverse practices, for diverse audiences. Look out for a timetabled programme and expect pop-up events such as:

  • Artists’ walks
  • Durational Curators
  • Meet the Maker
  • Thinking-through-doing workshops
  • Collaborative happenings & inclusive interventions

Rocket Artists are an inclusive group of artists who face and challenge barriers around art, inclusion, diversity, learning and communication. They work from their not-for-profit supported studios at Phoenix Art Space.
