Happy New Year!

BACKLIT would like to thank you for your ongoing support.

We look forward to announcing the 2017 programme soon.

We are proud to share (below) some achievements of 2016:  Backlit artists group show, Simon Starling exhibition, Best of the Jarman awards, the Alistair Frost – solo show, and becoming a charitable organisation that supports artist development and projects with local residents.

6th – 21st February

Our annual group show consisting of Backlit members that brings together varied practice in which artists are invited to collaborate and produce new commissioned work. MASS approaches the traditional group show with daring experiments in co-production that coalesce notions of: artist labour, materiality, re-enactment, volume, accumulation, veneration and dismissal. Exhibiting artists will be providing gallery tours every Saturday to discuss their practice and the themes of the exhibition.



“I could paint for a hundred years, a thousand years, without stopping and I would still feel as though I knew nothing.” – Alistair Frost

We’ve also been working closely with CRS to deliver workshops for local young people allowing them to gain new skills (funded by INTU)



Thank you to everyone that has supported us throughout 2016.
