the Attic at One Thoresby Street.
For its inaugural project, Sleeping Upright presents Reception Area, an online exhibition featuring the work of ten female artists which changes every day between 24 May – 2 June 2012 :
As a focal space within a working environment, a reception area performs a vital communicative role between a ‘producer’ and a ‘consumer’. For Sleeping Upright, the Reception Area exhibition acts as this place.
Reception Area sits alongside the Mika Rottenberg exhibition at Nottingham Contemporary and forms part of a wider opening programme for the Sleeping Upright project that includes ; an exhibition at One Thoresby Street featuring the work of Simon Davenport, Bryan Dooley, Candice Jacobs, Fay Nicolson & Oliver Smith and James E Smith who each have created a holding page for the Sleeping Upright website ; and an exhibition in the Attic at One Thoresby Street that displays a selection of other curatorial online projects from ; bazandchaz.com with a new commission from Martin Cole ; blackargos.com with a new installation by Majed Aslam and Chris Barr ; itsourplayground.com with an online exhibition and a new commission from Aurelien Mole ; pyramidd.biz with site specific collaborative work from multiple European artists ; and re-run.net a daily changing exhibition of looped video works in the gallery and on-line, including new commissions by 6 artists.
Sleeping Upright is a new project by Candice Jacobs.
Sleeping Upright acts as a space to develop and exchange new ideas and establish ways to think about and use the Internet to experience and buy contemporary art.
