History of TheGallery — 2003–2010
TheGallery was originally established in 1998, with the appointment of a part-time Exhibitions Officer under the management of The School of Art. TheGallery was then reopened in 2003 under the concept of text+work, as created by TheGallery Committee.
Its first exhibition presented under the concept of text + work was ‘Four Quartet Series’ by Ian McKeever + David Miller. It has since hosted 38 exhibitions (November 2003-April 2010), including three student Summer shows. Since October 2008, TheGallery has added Music to its repertoire, including the Goldberg Variations, performed by David Wright, and From Experimentalism to Minimalism, performed by Kokoro, as part of Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.
A recent collaborative approach with ArtSway, a contemporary art gallery in the New Forest, has also resulted in a presence from text+work at the international art exhibition, the Venice Biennale (2007 and 2009), when text+work hosted the seminars ‘Word Matters’, which explored the relation between the written word and contemporary art.
