Reboot: An Exhibition by Printemps and Green Riot
2nd - 16th November
Opening night: 1st November, 6-9pm

Surface Gallery is delighted to announce Reboot, an exhibition featuring Printemps and Green Riot.

Have you tried turning it off and on again? It’s time to refresh! Reboot suggests that you relocate your folders. Whether you’re a newbie or a connoisseur, life is full of soft glitches; things can appear frozen. Take a break, reconsider, refocus on who we are and what we stand for. Issues are not really issues: you just need to Reboot.

Printemps and Green Riot are two visual artists based in France. In 2016, they jointly created L’Agence en Résidence with a mission of developing international exhibitions and artist residencies. New media, new forms, new audiences. L‘Agence en Résidence seeks to reach the widest audience possible through quality content and engaging and accessible cultural programming. After dozens of shows and more than 40 residencies conducted with artists from the UK, Italy, Germany, India, and more, Printemps and Green Riot are back with a brand new show informed by their encounters and discoveries. Reboot speaks of their observations, achievements, soft fights, and their position in the field of art through an original series of green graffiti and lettering made especially for the occasion.

About the Artists
Printemps: painting, drawing, lettering, video art
Do you speak geek? Printemps explores the disruption of her generation through the continuous flux
and flow of information: bit language displaces conviction and represents the new nihilism and its relation to the media. 

Green Riot: green graffiti, bio-art
Make it green. Territorial wars, food, duplication, waste management, these issues at the heart of contemporary culture apply to a complex systems of plants. By giving human form to plants, Green Riot with his Green Graffiti opens a dialogue between human beings and their biological environments.

Artist Talks
Saturday 2nd November, 12pm
An opportunity to meet the artists and learn about the ideas behind the work. This is an informal event, and will be followed by a short Q and A. 

Reboot opens in the Project Space in conjunction with EM19 in the Main Gallery.  As always, there will be a donations bar with ales from local brewery, Pheasantry. 

Free Entry: Everyone Welcome

Surface Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition of our eleventh East Midlands Graduate Project, EM19: Octeria.

Octeria is a reflective declaration of existence; it is the freedom in defying the norm and amplifying the unnoticed. Octeria is what makes a plastic bag breathe; it is the process of embedding troubles, anxieties and passions into fabric. Octeria is the law of attraction’s neon glow and the products extracted from women’s bodies. Octeria is the threats to our wet, soft, complex, human selves.

The East Midlands Graduate Project supports Fine Art graduates across the region as they make the transition from university to the professional art world. Octeria is the culmination of a four-week residency undertaken in Surface Gallery’s upstairs Project Space. Eight of the region’s most exciting new graduate artists have been commissioned to produce original work for the exhibition
