A Jerwood Encounters exhibition co-curated by Marcus Coates and Grizedale Arts that focuses on art production as a useful and productive activity.
Coates' work as an artist often uses ritual to offer insights into unresolved questions in society.
Grizedale Arts' approach sets out to 'reconnect with the role of artists pre 1850, when arts practice in the UK diverged from its link to functionality and moved toward a self-referential culture, characterised by the making of art for art's sake'.
