As part of The Late Shows Vane is pleased to present the latest project from Sheffield-based Host Artists Group (HAG). HAG have invited 18 artists to create sound works that are imagined, otherly and utterly alien to the gallery setting, to be presented in a traditional gallery space, at once turning HAG’s usual practice of curating and producing art in alternative spaces on its head. The artists have produced challenging work that presents a diverse range of insights on this theme. This presentation offers an opportunity to access the ongoing debate surrounding the gallery setting and its relationship with the wider world beyond its doors.

Artists: Helen Blejerman, Rose Butler, Matt Butt, Michael Cousin, Katie Davies, Michael Day, Lesley Guy, Christopher Hall & Alexander Kelly, Esther Johnson, Tim Lambert, Francisco López, David Morin, Oberphones, Miguel Santos, Richard Sides, Neil Webb, Carl von Weiler, Ron Wright.

With thanks to Dacs Audio for supplying the sound system.
