Presenting new work from the KLICK artists to mark their year-long collaboration. The exhibition will present work exploring the theme of ‘a sense of place’ and will form a part of the 70th anniversary celebrations of the Oxford-Leiden link.
KLICK is an international art project offering a platform for young artists from Leiden and Oxford. In 2016, our cities will have been twinned for 70 years. Inspired by this friendship, we will bring together young artists from both cities to honour our shared history and forge new links through exchanges and exhibitions.
The KLICK artists are: Lauren Baldwin, Tamsin Corrigan, Matthee De Bruin, Samuel Harriman, Georgie Louise Harris, Emma Mayoux-Andrews, Hannah Jacques and Emma Van Noort.
This exhibition has been kindly supported by the Oxford-Leiden Link, Peen en Ui and the Exuberant Trust.
Exhibition Open: Thursdays – Sundays, 12-6pm

An opportunity to hear local creatives talk about their careers, artistic processes and collaborative practices. These short talks will provide you with an insight into their work, with an opportunity to ask questions and meet the guest speakers:
Hurst Street Press, an independent publishing house and printing press based at OVADA. They aim to disseminate original and innovative works using traditional techniques of production such as letterpress and hand-stitching.
Tommy Watkins, a fine artist from America now living and working in Oxford. He has been instrumental in forging and developing an arts scene in upstate New York through initiatives including co-founding the Upstate Artist Guild. He is now pushing the boundaries in his own practice in Oxford, as seen in his recent performance piece ‘Gun Capital USA’.
The Klick: Oxford-Leiden artists will also be discussing their work in the exhibition during an informal tour.
