WIP is a group exhibition showcasing work in progress from the studio holders at Stryx.
The choice of displaying developmental pieces over completed works lies in a collective emphasis on “doing”, in the value of “testing out”, the importance of failure, and allowing for conversations between artists and audiences.
Exhibition opens on Friday 2nd November 6pm-late and continues from the 3rd - 9th November, opening times: 4-7pm
