TEES An exhibition exploring the t-shirt as art form Preview: 30th September 2023, 2-5pm Show runs until 21st October 2023 Opening Times: 12-4pm Or by appointment Curated by Mike Chavez-Dawson & Co.

Featuring Sir Peter Blake, Jeremy Deller, David Shrigley, Bob and Roberta Smith and artists from Rogue Artists’ Studios, Paradise Works, Suite, Bankley Studios, AWOL Studios, Islington Mill and beyond... The show included over a hundred artists. It posed the question 'self-expression, protest what's the difference?' It took Article 50 as it's starting point. The Rogue ground floor Project Space was dressed as a superstore installation / retail space (see images), a fashion shoot leading up the launch event was sponsored by ME Agency's 'N0rth', this material created moving image material for the space as well as populating Social Media platforms and the e-catalogue. The links below will also bring you to several catalogue supportive texts by Dr Ben Ware 'The T-Shirt: Between Conformity and Transgression', Dr Neil Mulholland 'I'm with stupid?' and Sarah Waterhouse 'Band T-shirts'. Alongside a performative opening that featured artists Tanith Mab, David McGregor with a script for the tannoy system (Voiceover provided by Jane Chavez-Dawson), and as store assistants, and Janet Griffiths as the Store Manager, there was a spoken word poetry reading by Josef Minta based on his contribution, the following day there was a talk by artist activist Darren Cullen 'Spelling Mistakes Costs Lives'. https://www.n0rth.uk/tees-catalogue/ https://www.n0rth.uk/tees/tees-essays/ & https://www.n0rth.uk/tees/
