Here's a collage of inspiration to stimulate your creative juices from curator Melanie Ezra. She's been taking contemporary photographs of Bath and Swansea printed using historic techniques and reworking them into a new form. The history of photography has connections to Bath as well as Photography thanks to the early pioneers of the 1800s. A reworking in a contemporary style considers the idea that the past will forever be a part of how we are informed to create in the 21st century. This is part of a wider series where Melanie is appropriating the past for use in the present. See more over at melanieezra.com
Make of this what you will. In fact we insist you create, make, draw, sketch, perform as a response to the images and artwork we're providing here in these blog entries.

All we ask is that you tell us as much as possible about what is in your head and how you'd like to go about showing your Material Response.

A FaB Intervention
We will be following on from the success of A Fab Intervention 2016 in bringing performance and art to the streets of Bath. This year we are theming the event by inviting artists to submit their works in response to the artistic musings of the curators. We have considered what Bath means to us as contemporary creatives and created words, visuals, and music for you to respond to. These responses can be through any media you like. A FaB Intervention: Material Responses will be twofold:
1. A static exhibition to run the duration of FaB fortnight showcasing contemporary non-performative responses from selected artists.
2. A performance event on Saturday 27th May where selected interventionist artists and performers will share their disparate responses on the streets of Bath.
Interested? Email email@example.com to submit now for A FaB Intervention: Material Responses and we'll send you your inspiration to get you started. Deadline Monday 27 March 2017.
Curated by Melanie Ezra, Tim Kelly, Ben Honebone.
