And Miles to go Before I sleep
26th April – 11th May 2012
And Miles to Go Before I Sleep…….. is a presentation of four distinct artistic practices. The title is taken from the poem ‘Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening’ by the American writer Robert Frost. The poetic line acts as a metaphor for the durational endeavour and journey inherent in artistic production. This exhibition presents a pause or moment in that journey and shows us not necessarily completed or finished work, but a transitory phase in the generation and exploration of ideas at a given time.
The artists shown are currently participating in the Artists Access 2 Art Colleges scheme at The School of Art, Birmingham.
