Bring and Bye.

Saturday 9th- Sunday 10th July, 11am-5pm

Do you have any unwanted domestic goods that you would like to give a new life to?

aspex invites you to donate these objects to be used in our new exhibition, where selected artists and visitors are invited to use these materials to create new and exciting artworks.

Bring along these unused and beyond repair items and see these cast-offs transformed over the course of ‘Working title’.

Please note we are unable to take fridge freezers, mattresses, cookers and other large scale domestic items as these are difficult to dispose of.

About Working Title


Gallery 1
9 July – 25 September 2011

’Sometimes things fall apart so that better things can fall together’ – Marilyn Monroe

This summer aspex will undertake a rag and bone-style collection of unwanted domestic and small-scale industrial items within Portsmouth and Southsea. Selected artists will take these objects, which are no longer fit or have served their purpose and will turn them into something that is potentially beautiful and definitely different.

aspex’s main gallery space will function as both workshop and exhibition space with artists working for fixed periods throughout the project. Visitors will be able to access the gallery, observe & talk to the artists while they transform cast-offs into new creations or incorporate them into performances. An auction will take place during the final weekend of the show where the artists’ work will be available to the highest bidder.

Working Title is part-financed by the European Union, and is part of Landscapes, Cities, People, a project which aims to build and broaden audiences for contemporary visual art in the UK, France and Belgium.

Bring & Bye: Saturday 9 July and Sunday 10 July, 11am – 5pm
If you miss the rag & bone collection drop your unwanted items into the gallery at our Bring & Bye weekend. 

Artists taking part in this summer’s Working Title exhibition include:
Will Cruikshank, Amy Twigger Holroyd, Nicola Dale, Lode Geens, Beata Kozlowska, Charlie Hurcombe, Andy Parker, Jason Taylor, Paul Matosic, Thomas Davis, Tamara Van San.
