Sheffield, S1 4JT

Join us for a tour of the S1’s 2014 Member’s Show. The studio artists have collaborated to develop a new curatorial premise for the two-part exhibition featuring newly commissioned sculptures which act as support structures upon which the exhibition will be staged.  This collaborative approach makes reference to the ongoing dialogue around artistic practice that exists between artists in S1’s open plan studios, for which the studios have become well known.

We will then meet with internationally renowned artist Simon Bill to discuss his new large-scale public commission, Irises. Presented in the seven archways of the iconic Leadmill tram depot building in central Sheffield this ambitious project will feature seven unique large scale paintings which experiment with the optical illusion of neon spreading.
