This installation of work by Scarborough-based artist Jade Montserrat, consists of large-scale charcoal drawings made directly on the walls of the gallery. The drawings offer fragmented reflections of the artists experience navigating her way through education, working as an artist and living in the UK. Amongst the drawings sits a structure that will be host to a series of events relating to care and education.
Instituting Care was developed in 2018 whilst Montserrat worked as the artist in residence at Bluecoat, Liverpool’s Centre for the Contemporary Arts. Whilst in residence, Montserrat met local artists, educators and activists in Liverpool, some of whom will be facilitating related events during the exhibition.
Humber Street Gallery is a contemporary art space nestled in the heart of the city’s Fruit Market cultural quarter. Housed in a former fruit warehouse, the gallery will showcase the best in contemporary visual arts from the shocking to the sublime. The gallery seeks to generate debate, push boundaries, encourage new ways of thinking and inspire with a packed programme designed to appeal to those both familiar and not so familiar with the arts.
