Limbo exhibition celebrates opening of new project space

Limbo Project Space

Limbo gallery and studios in Margate is opening its new Project Space.

Having undergone a series of changes over the years, the multi-purpose space will now host a lively program of exhibitions, workshops, residencies and collaborations with local artists, community groups, and practitioners from further afield.

The building housing the Project Space has a rich history, dating back to 1849: it is a former electrical substation, which provided DC power to the tramlines of Margate, and then to Dreamland. The building also houses a collection of artists’ studios.

To celebrate the opening of the Project Space, Limbo is holding an exhibition showcasing the work of the studio holders. The show brings together disparate practices – from dada-inspired sculpture to prosaically unsettling charcoal drawings, manually conscious painting and archival performance – the only thing connecting these works is their state of Limbo.

Exhibiting artists are Dazzling Allgood, Sheradon Dublin, Francesca Flowers, Simon Foxall, Steve Ibb, Patrick Morales-Lee, Claire Orme, David M Price, Shaun Stamp, Gavin Toye and Sara Trillo.

A downloadable playlist, curated by local label Kit Records, will accompany the exhibition.

Private view is on October 27 from 6.30pm to 9pm. Open to the public October 28-29 from noon until 5pm.
