Views From Afar

Views from Afar

Kaavous Clayton was invited by Vulpes Vulpes to curate an exhibition selected from the artist membership of OUTPOST (an artist run space based in Norwich). The resulting show, Views from Afar, was a testing ground for a speculative hypothesis rather than a statement of fact and presentation of proof. Is there a discernible character to the work of those artists operating outside the main metropolitan centres of contemporary art production? Can a defining approach be discovered amongst groups of artists who work out of the same location, whether they are exploring similar themes or not?
