The purpose of diagrams is to provide a simple, visual representation of information. Through their use, we attempt to understand and control our surroundings by containing and categorising them within the confines of a visual language. There is a transformative element to a diagram, where information becomes illustrative and embedded with meaning. The exhibition brings together four artists who bring their own interpretation to diagrams. Here, the artists employ diagrams as a way of displaying a personal, idiosyncratic side to a mathematical and systematic format.
Further information about spring term events, including lunchtime concerts presented by the Royal Northern College of Music, and curator-led exhibition tours will be available here in January.
This exhibition is a curatorial collaboration between independent curator Tom Emery and Holden Gallery curator Zoe Watson.
