On 4th December at Block336, group exhibition CARNIVAL GLASS and solo exhibition  HOMEWARE_update open simultaneously. Carnival Glass is curated by Archie Franks and brings together seven artists whose works explore alternative histories, including aspects of the Gothic and the carnivalesque. These artists work beyond the remit of modernist orthodoxy, instead mining different cultural and historical tangents.

In Corey Bartle-Sanderson’s first solo show HOMEWARE_update the work probes ideas relating to duplicity and artifice using sculpture, installation and photography. Combining objects and images that have been found or painstakingly handcrafted, Bartle-Sanderson challenges our perception of the everyday whilst striking a balance between the surreal and the real.



Block 336 will host six stimulating and provocative conversations between art world professionals, including artists, curators, consultants, gallery directors, academics and researchers will explore core problems in the structure of the art world, and seek to address its contemporary system failure. As well as diagnosing the problems, alternative ways that the art world might begin to function will be suggested, in order to improve the status and earning power of visual artists.

Previous exhibition: ERAMAA | Alex Gough

Eramaa showcased Block 336 studio artist Alex Gough’s recent large-scale paintings. Immersing the viewer within a destabilising perceptual field the work captured both the nearness of the screensaver and the distant memory of the natural world.
