Firstsite’s young people’s group, Y.A.K. (Young Art Kommunity) invites you to celebrate the opening of Yours, Comes Comitis on Friday 17 April, 6 – 8pm.
The exhibition is on display until 31 May 2015.
Programmed and delivered by young people, this exhibition offers visitors a truly unusual experience.
Y.A.K. (Young Art Kommunity) have asked young people from all over the Eastern region to create artwork to show as part of this exhibition which takes inspiration from gender representation. Rather than just see the chosen artworks you can get involved in choosing which objects could be shown next.
With support from our participatory curators you can explore the artworks then decide which objects should be shown and why, creating your own version of the exhibition.
Comes Comitis is a Latin word used to refer to a comrade, companion, associate or partner. The exhibition aims to explore and challenge the ways in which gender is represented, especially the dominant and perhaps stereotypical representations which are often seen in the visual arts and mass media.
