Boundary Encounters exhibition announcement

Modern Art Oxford today announces its summer programme, Boundary Encounters, which brings together creative communities for a participatory series of new commissions, residencies, live events and a collaboratively selected archive display. Through these activities visitors will be invited to use the gallery as a space for exploration and participation as a way to create shared learning experiences with other visitors.

Boundary Encounters features new commissions by Valerie Asiimwe AmaniJulie FreemanHarold Offeh, and Deborah Pill, as well as the Creatives in Residence, 5 local creatives from Oxfordshire who will utilise the gallery space to develop their practice directly with audiences. Alongside this there will be an archival display delving into the history of public programming at Modern Art Oxford and an interactive digital project exploring the way we capture moments of connection, exchange and community.

The summer programme initiates an inquiry into the small-scale interactions which take place at Modern Art Oxford through an alternative use of our gallery spaces. Key to Boundary Encounters is a spotlight on the gallery’s vital community connections and the critical role alternative spaces, community centres and local grassroots organisations play in creating capacity for public unity, celebrating difference, and valuing diverse community heritage.
