DANCE FIRST THINK LATER is showcasing work by 45 contemporary artists made during 15 weeks of lockdown.
We have been so heartened by the way artists have responded to this period, forever resourceful, developing new ways of working with limited means, adapting their practices and sharing their process of making and thinking.
Much of this wonderful and varied work that has so far only been visible online will be going up at @generalpractice Lincoln from the 8th July until 23rd August and will be available to see in person by appointment during that time.
Our ethos is to support artists and so many of the works will be for sale through @artistsupportpledge #artistsupportpledge. We do not take any commission and all money goes directly to the artists. If you are interested in buying something we can put you in touch with them.
[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.
If you would like to get involved with [gP] to arrange an exhibition, a commission or to enquire about joining the collective please get in touch here.
We also welcome any comments or feedback you may have about our work, and look forward to hearing from you.
