André Stitt

Exhibition opening Thursday 26th October 5-7pm

CIVICS brings together a significant number of works by renowned visual and performance artist André Stitt. Responding to the legacy of Britain’s New Towns and post-war brutalist architecture, the paintings in this large-scale exhibition draw upon the materiality of the built environment and its abstract displacement through art as a memory of forms reimagined as a parallel universe.

The exhibition will include work made during 2016 and 2017, based on several research trips to the nearby new town of Skelmersdale.
