Could Have Fooled Me IV


Could Have Fooled Me IV is an exploration of contemporary Art staged at the Upwey Old School Village Hall from 30th March to 1st April 2012.

As the date suggests this is an opportunity for artists to step over the normally acceptable line beyond their usual practice and comfort zone and into areas of conceptualisation predominantly reserved by artists with delusions of self importance and self awareness.

The work can be delivered and will be hung or otherwise put on show during the day on Friday 30th March. Artists are invited to "stay for tea" at the end of the afternoon, for a discussion about their work and to have a chance to examine each others work and make critical appraisals - using Post-It Notes.

Fan and admirers are invited to attend the exhibition over the 3 days, on Friday afternoon they will be able to get in the way of the artists while they install their work and provide help and assistance, Over the weekend between 10am and 5pm the public will be encouraged to join in the critical dialogue by the use of Post-It Notes. They will be able to make bids for the work on display or in some cases commission new work, especially if of a site specific nature.

On Saturday 31st there will be an All Fools' Eve Party open to artists, fans and their guests from 7.30pm until late. There will be a bar and some light entertainment, but also the chance to mingle and discuss the issues raised by the event.

There is an archive of images from the gallery in 2012 at this link.
