See Here – The Old Auction house

See Here – The Old Auction house


In 2018 curatorial group Quarry Lab organised a group exhibition of 21 artists from the UK, Europe and the Commonwealth. Presented in an former auction house and ex-industrial space, the show explored key themes of place making through migration and the exchange of cultural ideas.

The show included sculpture, painting, photography and film, live music, theatre performances and lectures many of which were a direct response to the theme of a former auction house. A key motivation for the exhibition is direct response to the slow erosion in recent times of ideals that have promoted genuine change across societies and cultures. The ‘spaces’ in which people have fought for equality and civil rights have increasingly come under attack and have been shut down and See Here exhibition was a focus for exploring these issues and future actions.

The book includes 41 images of artworks and a photographic essay by photographer James Gardiner that explores the dilapidated victorian building in transition which stands a metaphor for the many of themes See Here explores.
