On Fun & Friction

The Steven Campbell Trust are delighted to be supporting the forthcoming exhibition ‘On Fun and Friction’.


Coordinated and curated by artist Rosie Roberts, On Fun and Friction is an exhibition celebrating 25 years since Steven Campbell’s seminal exhibition at the Third Eye Centre “On Form and Friction’ recently re-hung for Generation in 2014.

On Fun and Friction is an exhibition that celebrates and empowers those working in a painterly form or who feel a strong relationship to a painting/non painting contemporary art discourse. The show will bring together new painted works set against an audio and sculptural background, which embraces and questions a time when there are tangible struggles between different forms of contemporary practitioners, theoretically and practically and the importance or problems with empowering each individuals approach.

The title “On Fun and Friction” is a clear reference to Steven Campbell’s original exhibit. The exhibition is not intended as an attack but rather an invitation for discussion to highlight the literal sometimes-humorous friction that can often be felt between painters and other practitioners.

Artist’s featured: Caitlin Hynes, Owen Piper, Rachel Jones, Jacob Kerray, Fiona Beveridge, Alexander Millar, Rosie Roberts, Brian Cheeswright, Alexandra Leach.

The Steven Campbell Trust will also be loaning an original work by Steven Campbell.
