Forbidden Fruit - Open Exhibition

26 Oct 2023 - 14 January 2024
PV Thursday 26 Oct 6pm - 8:30pm
A Mixed Exhibition 

The words chosen for this years Open Exhibition - ‘Forbidden Fruit’ - is of immeasurable scope for artists and collectors alike.

Ever since Adam took The Apple from Eve’s hand, humanity, in all its guises, has succumbed to temptation, and has been aware of ‘Forbidden Fruit’. Although the title appears to suggest allegorical narratives, even biblical interpretation, for this open exhibition we are asking artists to encompass all aspects of the title, there are obvious parallels with current times. General consensus is changeable, as well as our own peculiarities. To quote art historian Mary Beard from her groundbreaking program Forbidden Art- of 2022 ‘to see or not to see’. Issues addressed are paradise, beauty, hedonism, erotic desire, feminism, sexuality, no entry, subversion, peepshow, addiction, and who knows what other thoughts and feelings will inspire our artists? This is a mixed media exhibition of painting, 3D and assemblage, prints, ceramics, lens based and more.
