TWENTY7 is as an exhibition of works by students studying on the MA Fine Art course, as part of an ongoing collaboration between the course, The Art House and Artwalk Wakefield.
The exhibition is being shown for one night only, as part of the Artwalk which takes place in venues across Wakefield. The name TWENTY7 is taken from the average time spent in front of a gallery work of 27 seconds. The exhibition is designed to challenge the viewer to reflect on how, and for how long you engage with artwork.

TWENTY 27 will be exhibited at The Art House, Wakefield on Wednesday 25 May from 5 – 7pm. Rae George, one of the exhibiting artists said: "This is our first exhibition together and we want to challenge the viewer to spend time with the work we have made. It's been great to collaborate and bring the show to life thinking about alternate ways to curate."
