YOU’RE GONNA NEED A BIGGER BOAT

Curated by photographer Jason Evans, this new exhibition brings together artefacts from our industrial, consumer society.  Handmade signage recalls local commerce, pre-globalisation, and highlights ongoing transitions from analogue to digital.  Some of the objects on show remain in circulation today, yet serve as a nostalgic reminder of the technological changes in our recent past.

The exhibition features pages from the archive of Dick Hambidge, a sign writer from East Kent, who documented his works in meticulous photographic albums, presenting an alternative record of provincial life.

Also on show is a selection of erudite political ‘lampoons’ by Ditchling printmaker Philip Hagreen, loaned by Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft. Hagreen’s wood engravings feel as relevant now as when they were published eighty years ago.

Visitors will be able to see an intriguing selection of original items from Clark Brothers of Manchester, who continue to hand produce point-of-sale marketing materials for a disappearing High Street.

Finally, the exhibition will also feature an interactive photo opportunity, social media content, a marketing soundtrack and a new series of Evans’ own binary screen prints. Look out for people in Nottingham who will be participating in a project that Jason is running alongside the exhibition; they will be wearing T-shirts which feature a wood-engraving by Philip Hagreen. You can find out more about this project here on the blog.

» JASON EVANS

Jason Evans (b. 1968) is a multidisciplinary photographer who, since the early 1990s, has had a broad cultural practice. His output has developed to include writing and teaching alongside applied image making. He works around art, fashion and street photography tropes, making images which are often informed by vernacular culture. His long-term projects with musicians Four Tet, Caribou and Radiohead resulted in influential sleeve imagery and portraits which seek to redefine the relationships between sound and image.

Since 2004, Evans has maintained The Daily Nice, which celebrates simple pleasures as their own reward. Every day an image of something which made him happy is presented on this one page, non-archived website.

His work is exhibited internationally, and his game-changing series Strictly is held in the Tate collection. Solo shows include his nomination for the Grange Prize at the AGO in Toronto and a retrospective of his Fashion work at the Hyeres Festival du Mode. His monographs include NYLPT (Mack, 2012) and Pictures for looking at (Printed Matter, 2014).
