In collaboration with Grand Union and the University of Birmingham, Three Models for Change, will take place at STRYX in Minerva Works, Digbeth, June 2018.

Three Models for Change is a group exhibition asserting the importance of historical awareness in establishing future potentials of communities. The works in this exhibition fluctuate between three actual and staged narratives: the formation of a fictional Quaker-punk band; the staging of cross-generational Queer histories; the uncertainty surrounding a newly formed volcanic island and its territorial disputes.

References to utopian moments, groups, and places question current socio-political systems, offering possible new ways of thinking and being. Three Models for Change is an ambiguous statement and this exhibition embodies neither utopian nor pragmatic outcomes, but instead provides a platform of shared histories to stimulate thoughts around alternative futures.

This exhibition includes existing work and new commissions by artists Chris Alton, Ian Giles and Greta Hauer.
