Fritha Jenkins and Edna Lumb: Aggregate

14 February - 29 March 2018

The machine aesthetics of Edna Lumb (1931-1992) are unique in the male-dominated heavy industry of the mid-twentieth century.

More recently, Fritha Jenkins (an interdisciplinary artist as well as Lumb's archivist), has sought to investigate materials such as aggregate and river-water through performance and sculpture. 

Aggregate will constitute an experimental live curation open to the public. This rotating exhibition will also explore potential intersections between feminism, queer sexualities, and northern industrial archaeology using the metaphor of aggregate.


Performance: Thursday 22 February 1-2pm
Free entry

Closing performance: Thursday 29 March 5-7pm
Free entry
