Paving the way for performance.

Co-run by Rachel Lonsdale, Sarah Nahas and Max Melvin.

Every two months at hARTslane gallery we will be hosting an evening of live art. This is an evening showcasing a small group of artists who experiment with live and performance based work. Each artist is given a 10-15 minute slot – there is no pressure for finalised work and it is encouraged to submit snippets and works in progress.
What to expect: performance/ live drawing/ spoken word/ happenings/ live action
We have: A projector, mic, mic stand, tables, chairs, the gallery space, the space just outside of the gallery
If you are an artist experimenting with something live and want to bring it to hARTslane gallery to test, keep a watch out for our next open call on our instagram @h.artslane
