Joanne Masding
The New Art Gallery Walsall
5 May - 30 July 2017
In conversation with Curator Deborah Robinson, Saturday 17 June, 2pm

The New Art Gallery Walsall is delighted to present a solo exhibition of new work by Birmingham-based artist Joanne Masding.

Masding is interested in the ways in which we perceive and experience objects and images, particularly within an increasingly digital and immaterial world.

Whether it be in the world of museums and galleries or within the context of online experiences where we are saturated with images and information, our understanding is mediated by context; selection and display, language, reproduction, shifts of scale and editing. Our perceptions of value shift accordingly.

For this exhibition, Masding has borrowed from the language of museum displays, hanging systems, catalogue reproductions, signage, text, conservation and art handling to create a series of brand new works that also engage with the unique architecture of the Floor 4 Gallery.
