Extempore 24  

22 February-2 March 

Extempore 24 is an exhibition curated by Alison Aye and Ken Turner. It aims to explore the spontaneity and willingness of the artists to come together ‘in real life’ and be part of the Tension community.

As contemporary artists, living in a post-Lockdown world of virtual meetings and social media, it is often hard to make real connections. Extempore 24 aims to dispose of superficiality, put names to actual faces, build relationships and physical community.

Artists were invited via Instagram, approximately 2 weeks before the installation date, to take part in this impromptu exhibition. The only requirements being; a piece of art in any medium, no larger than 40 x 40cm, to be installed by the artists on the same day as a party.
