Ball Sports at AVA Curated by Kirsty Cockerill
Ball Sports AT AVA Curated by Kirsty Cockerill Monday, 12 November to Friday, 23 November
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
In the run up to the 2010 World Cup, all eyes focus on sport. Art and sport are commonly perceived as polar opposites, drawing different audiences, engaging with different notions of culture. Ball Sports calls for artists to engage sport as a starting block for the interrogation of serious and not so serious social dynamics.
This will take the form of a curated exhibition at AVA and will employ all four gallery spaces.
