The exhibition, ENTRY, is a foray into creating a synergy by gathering various artistic voices together to extend a context for individual practitioner’s own work. The exhibition intends to activate the Artscape Resource Centre’s exhibition space, by giving artists the space to show the work to an audience who would not have necessarily encountered the work in this manner. The exhibition seeks to open an opportunity for future exhibitions, collaborations and possibly residencies. During the 5 week period, the work shown inculcates a myriad of ideas and forms, most significantly their entries into space, just as the space is entering a new phase.

The exhibition’s primary aim is to promote various visual art forms and create a platform to profile various artists and present their work with the assistance of the Artscape Resource Centre.
