Exhibition: 95mm2

Capsule presents 95mm2 a collection of 8 beer mat designs produced by the following artists: Steven Barich, Chu, Tom Gauld, Sadim Habib, Andrew James Jones, Ben Javens, Al Murphy, Otonashi (artists collective). Since the first series of 95mm2 in 2002 the Medicine bar has expanded into a range of venues under the Art and Music umbrella, this second series with be exhibited across all 4 venues. The artists have all been selected with their individual relevance in mind, each are a reflection of the alternating activities and audiences that pass by and take place within the various venues. Designs from each artist have been reproduced as beer mats, a limited run of 500 per design will be “exhibited” within The Bulls Head (Moseley/B’ham), Medicine Bar / The Kitchen (Birmingham) The Halfway House (Wolverhampton) for at least one month. Each of the venues as exhibition spaces obviously provide sphysical restraints on the type of work that can be displayed. 95mm2 offers a creative response to exhibiting artworks in non-gallery environments.
