Turnstile – Single Use

Interval is looking for new media art works that respond or relate to the concept of ‘Single Use’.

Turnstile is a new concept in art tourism – an innovative exhibition format developed around the idea that most people only visit an exhibition once.

Turnstile utilises this observation as an approach and redesigns the approach to an exhibition, mimicking an audiences actions and flow.

Turnstile will consist of a series of 4 single-day exhibitions. Each day will see 5 artists install, exhibit and remove their work from the venue. This style of event is new and innovative, responsive to tight schedules and busy lifestyles. The space will be open for preview each evening from 5-9pm, after which the work will be removed ready for the next 5 artists to install. Each day is sub themed, aiming to explore different contextual approaches around the notion of Single Use. The exhibition will take place in a large empty retail space in central Manchester at the end of July.

Interval is looking for media based artworks exploring the field of Single Use, and responsive to one or more of the 4 themes:
Successful Failure
Everything Must Go
Outside of Parallel
Portable Rest


Turnstile is conceived and directed by Karen Gaskill
