Sidney & Matilda Gallery- New Exhibition of Street & Outsider Art

Recommended Posts

Sidney and Matilda is a new gallery on the corner of Sidney and Matilda Street- hence the name. 

 

We are about to open our 4th show called 'Over The influence' which reflects Sheffield's love of Street Art- the show opens on Thursday 18th April at 6pm  and continues till 11th May (see details below) .  I think its going to be a really interesting exhibition with  the opportunity to buy original art works including more affordable prints and drawings.

Over The Influence’ is the first part of a series of exhibitions at S+M which begin to examine the connections between drugs, the law and art making today; providing a showcase of progressive Street & Outsider Art from the fringes of society.
 

Embracing an ethos of the genuine outsider, this show features the work of a wide range of contributors including, among others, a skateboarder, a tattoo artist, a former drug smuggler, an ex-fireman, graffiti writers, an anonymous artist, a calligrapher, a cancer survivor, a traveller and a wood worker.

 

This work reflects the attitude of this group of edgy and progressive artists where the simple act of working, experimenting and risk taking forms the backbone to their constantly evolving output.

Discarding the context of ‘high’ and ‘low’ art, of ‘inside’ or ‘outside’, these terms begin to become irrelevant with the boundary between illustration and fine art literally vibrating from pillar to post, and from wall to canvas, via stickers, stencils, found objects and materials.

 

Given the inherent, authentic nature of this group’s output and the obvious abandonment of structure, they could be seen to be over the influence, rather than under it.
