Yellow Archangel is a touring exhibition of expanded painting. It began its journey at Oceans Apart in Salford in September 2020 and continues on to General Practice in Lincoln, May 2021. Each show manifests itself in a new way: new artists are invited to take part, thereby, allowing subsequent iterations to form new chapters in the life of the project.

The show takes the metaphor of the rhizome as its starting point – a plant with an unending underground stem system that grows by putting out networks of roots at sporadic intervals. Rhizome plants, examples being ginger or lilies, are known for their ability to spread and sprawl due to the voracious horizontal root systems they possess. Therefore, extending beyond normative plant structures.

A vastly heterogeneous body of work is being brought together for this project; indeed each piece might be considered hard to classify, an anomaly amongst more traditional forms of painting. Yellow Archangel amalgamates these anomalies. It considers the multiplicity of connections made as the boundaries of non-object painting are crossed and new relationships and identities form in the exploration of new territory.

Our next show Yellow Archangel takes place from the 21st May – 26th June. Please DM our Instagram account @generalpractice or email us thegeneralpractice@gmail.com to arrange/book a slot. As we are self-funded we don’t have a permanent invigilator therefore advanced booking is essential.

Method-Lab Part Deux

  1 July 2021 – 1st August 2021

Exhibiting Artists: Nathan Baxter, Andrew Bracey, Rob Britt, Kate Buckley, Joana Cifre Cerdà, Ross Oliver, Nick Simpson

2-15th August 2021 Olly Ventress

16-29th August 2021 Annie Morrad

 

Method-Lab is an experimental residency between members of General Practice (Gp). The restrictions of Covid-19 perversely encouraged the group of artists to adapt and return to an experimental way of creating work. The first iteration in Winter 2020-21 saw the members of Gp develop their individual practices from their makeshift home-studios, along with critical discourse using online video chat on a regular basis. Method-Lab Part Deux will be a way of experimenting and expanding on new techniques and ways of approaching and making work using the studio/project space to help expand and inform ways of working.

 

A collaborative ethos and supportive atmosphere pervades; the individual practices of the Gp artists are stronger by being together. The General Practice hive-brain encourages an experimental and generative approach. During July the artists will work together on developing their work for an exhibition at GLOAM in Sheffield; in August General Practice will support two Lincoln-based artists – Annie Morrad and Olly Ventress - through two, two-week micro residencies. On Friday and Saturday throughout July and August, visitors are welcome to come and see what the artists have been doing, to have a cup of tea and to talk with them.

GLOAM show

  10-26 September 2021

An exhibition of artists from GLOAM studios in Sheffield, as part of an exchange show that will see General Practice artists exhibit at GLOAM.

GLOAM is a collectively-run exhibition and studio space located in Sheffield City Centre. It was originally set up by artist and musician Mark Riddington in 2017. In 2020, GLOAM became a co-operative (with co-directors: Stu Burke, Thomas Lee Griffiths, Sam Francis Read, Victoria Sharples & Rose Hedy Squires), gained LTD status, and relocated for expansion to 160 Arundel Street; the former location of the DIY music venue, The Lughole. GLOAM now houses 8 studios across 2 floors; a gallery space and an upcoming workshop. The space, which resonates with GLOAM’s ethos as a proudly representative grassroots organisation,which embraces the spirit of the DIY scene.

Simon Harris

  8-24 October 2021

A solo exhibition of new paintings by Wolverhampton based artist Simon Harris.

GROWlab

  1 June 2021 – 31 May 2022

Exhibiting Artists: Nathan Baxter, Andrew Bracey, Rob Britt, Kate Buckley, Joana Cifre Cerdà, Ross Oliver, Nick Simpson

 

GROWlab is an experiment...

              experiment in growing…

                                              growing to see what emerges, when…

                                                                                           when what happens if:

                                                                                                                                    Growth is free

                                                                                                                                                                   Growth is curbed

                                                                                                                                                                                                        Growth is pushed

                                                                                                                                                 Growth is framed

                                                                                                          Growth is stopped

           

The artists in General Practice will spend a year with experimenting in seeing what happens when you approach growing as a creative medium. Friends - both existing and yet to be made - will also input into GROWlab in as yet unknown ways, a programme to be made through conversation, through doing and thinking-making.  The formerly male toilets will shift from their current use as a store to be converted to GROWlab. Curiosity is the only pejorative, no outcomes or outputs are expected, only the drive to set things in motion.

[gP] is an artist collective living and working from Lincoln, UK. 

 

Promoting exchange with wider artist led initiatives nationally and internationally [gP] seeks to stimulate a critical discourse, and sustain an engaged visual arts culture in the city through the programming of exhibitions, events and workshops.

With an emphasis on a fluid and experimental approach, gP encourages a diverse range of artistic practices that are developed collectively. Within the core group of approximately 10 artists there are on-going collaborations with more specific interests such as Curio, Mulch, Angry Gang, GAST, Reel and KAC which extend into the wider artistic community, incorporating contributions from practitioners in other locales. This collaborative ethos is clearly demonstrated through our workshop practice too; continuing to encourage collective exploration of creative subjects, blurring the line between workshop facilitators and workshop attendees.

[gP] has begun offering a selection of events, workshops and exhibitions for 2020.

 

The calendar shows all upcoming events we have planned so far. Keep checking back for more info on what is happening next. 

Regular events include life drawing classes and open crits at our project studio on Clasketgate, Lincoln. 

Success! Message received.
