Pleasure islands

Palin, Tom (2016) Pleasure islands. [Show/Exhibition]

Abstract

Pleasure Islands is series of collaborative exhibitions that seeks to gather together new works from a diverse collection of early and mid-career painters. Each iteration of Pleasure Islands builds upon previous connections, both painterly and in terms of curatorial strategies, and extends new invitations, pursuing a shifting, dynamic and open conversation about the role and viability of painting today. The First exhibition featured works by 11 artists: Robin Megannity, Louise Giovanelli, Brian Moutford, Dylan Thomas, Tom Farthing, Jane Hayes Greenwood, Tal Regev, Tom Palin, Donal Moloney, Peter Daviz and Tom Howse, and took place in Artwork Atelier, Salford. The second show contained the work of 11 artists, and took place in 3Space, Manchester, later the same year. This exhibition was set to a specially created audio score by Alexander Roberts, a.k.a. Kepier Widow. Conceived as a sound track, recordings of the space were manipulated, and the data processed in response to the environment. Participating artists were: Richard Baker, Robin Megannity, Louise Giovanelli, Brian Mountford, Eilis Otway, Evie O’Connor, Tom Palin, Wayne Robinson, Alex Roberts, Edgar Soprans and Dylan Thomas.
