Exhibitions

The Games of Art exhibition presents a selection of imaginative artworks created over the last 40 years of 'Artful Games'; and texts explaining the nature and philosophy behind the art of 'creative and cooperative' games : 'Absolute freedom within very definite limits'. This follows a principle that Paul Taylor, American Choreographer once explained as : 'give yourself a set of simple limitations and do the best you can'.

YG and On Track Abdal Hadi formerly stevie SmithCelebrating forty years of the Black-E, the exhibition researches the lives of dozens of Black-E ‘alumni/ae’ (former youthful participants, volunteers and apprentices), to create an extended exhibition of the youth of the past to inspire the youth of the present. The project aims to identify the
impact that The Black-E has had on alumnae, paying particular
attention to their potential as role models for young
people currently in our community.
