THE EXCHANGE

19th Feb 2022 - 4th Jun 2022

Simple Truths is part of Newlyn Art Gallery and The Exchange’s New Voices Programme, which gives a platform to members of the community not often heard, through the curation of works selected from the Arts Council Collection.

The artworks for Simple Truths have been chosen by dads from the WILD Young Parents Project, who the gallery has been working with since March 2021, from their allotment in Pengegon, Camborne.

With each visit to the allotment the dads were asked to select an artwork from the Arts Council Collection catalogues, which were kept in the allotment shed. Marking their choices with a Post-it note and a line about why they’d chosen it, an interesting collection of works has steadily formed. Choices reflect how the dads were feeling in that moment or spoke of a past experience or of future ambitions. Over a brew from a ghillie kettle, conversation flowed, exploring their choices and often providing the starting point for personal reflections around mental health or what was happening in their lives in that moment.

Simple Truths includes paintings, photographs, and sculptures by:

David Batchelor / Maeve Brennan / Shezad Dawood / Seamus Nicolson / Richard Patterson / Liv Preston / Bob Robinson / Caroline Walker / Bedwyr Williams

An Arts Council Collection National Partners Programme Exhibition, curated by dads from the WILD Young Parents Project.
