Beta Version 2.0
19 January – 10 March 2012
Beta Version 2.0 expands on some of the questions raised by the

Beta Version 2.0 looks at the contemporary art exhibition as a
temporary collection, with work that addresses the transience or
otherwise of current practice, and explores the relationship
between collection and curation; in particular the roles played by
artist, curator and audience in creating work for display.
As part of this show Dan Simpson is asking twitter users to
contribute lines for a poem about 'curating a collection'. He will
collate all responses into a poem and will perform at the opening
of the exhibition at 6:45pm on 19 January. Contributions can be
made on twitter #collectedpoem - listen to Dan
