    Vaguity is a show produced by the nine current students of OVADA’s Warehouse Art School. Alongside their individual practices all the members of the group agreed early in the year to participate in a group experiment to explore the possibilities of working collaboratively. Otherwise the project had loose and hazy aims and intentions for a considerable time, taking on the invented title ‘Vaguity’.

    The exhibition is a result of a number of projects that developed involving a range of different media including photography, painting, video, image manipulation, 3D and language. Each of the nine projects involved all nine students so that none of the work is individually credited.

    Open: 12-6pm

    Admission Free
