Nick’s new exhibition is out of this world

Derbyshire-based artist Nick Hersey will be the artist in residence at Derby arts centre QUAD from September 27 during their new exhibition Event Horizon.

Nick Hersey will be exploring ideas and interpretations surrounding the exhibition themes and will produce original artworks inspired by these responses. These artworks will be displayed in an evolving installation in QUAD’s extra gallery spaces throughout the duration of the residency.

From September 27 until the beginning of December, the duration of the exhibition, Nick will be hosting weekly drop-in sessions at the studio, and will also be available for participatory and outreach activities. The artist has also started installing his trademark ‘pop-up’ studio in QUAD this week, from which he will be gathering research and polling for inspiration from the general public, as well as building artworks and inviting collaboration.

A sense of the great unknown and endless possibilities of the universe is the focus for the new exhibition Event Horizon.

The exhibition is free to visit.
