Opportunity: Jason Evans T-Shirt Project 29 March 2017

Volunteers wanted to participate in a t-shirt project as part of Jason Evans’ ‘You’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat’ exhibition which opens here at the Gallery on Wednesday 19 April. Read the brief from Jason below: 

I am looking for volunteers to wear specially produced t-shirts; made to extend the reach of my exhibition ‘You’re Gonna Need a Bigger Boat’ at Bonington Gallery, Wednesday 19 April – Friday 19 May 2017. More information about the exhibition can be found here on the exhibition page.

I am looking for willing individuals who work in public facing roles to wear the shirt that features a wood-engraving by artist Philip Hagreen (see below). While I am in Nottingham I will attempt to make a portrait of as many of the participants as possible, in their place of work, and would encourage ongoing sharing of images of the shirts online/in social media, with the accompanying hashtag #youregonnaneedabiggerboat and/or #philiphagreen. The intention is to build up an inventory of images of people wearing this t-shirt during the exhibition dates and beyond.

In recognition of your contribution to the project all participants can keep their (limited edition) t-shirt.

Please email boningtongallery@ntu.ac.uk with the subject heading ‘T-shirt Project’ to register your involvement or to find out more about the project. T-shirts are available in standard sizes ranging from small to x-large. In your email, please indicate the size you would like.
