Following the huge success of their crowdfunding campaign Circus Artspace present their inaugural exhibition, ‘Parade‘, taking place in the beautifully refurbished gym hall at Inverness Creative Academy. This exhibition brings together a diverse group of artists and work, from installation and printmaking to film and performance, to launch their programme with a playful spirit of exploration and celebration.
Circus Artspace are a new artist-run initiative located within Phase 1 of Inverness Creative Academy. Wasps is working in partnership with the artist’ collective and are supporting the project through providing the use of the fantastic former Gym Hall at the Creative Academy.
The Circus collective say “we are delighted to be working with Wasps as part of their Arts Enterprise programme. Many of us are studio holders and we want to help make the Inverness Creative Academy the vibrant heart of the visual arts scene in Highlands. This was our first time crowdfunding and it’s great to know that there is an enthusiastic community keen to have a dedicated space for contemporary visual arts in Inverness.“
Audrey Carlin, Wasps Chief Executive said “working with Circus Artspace provides a really exciting opportunity to showcase contemporary art which is an integral part of the cultural scene in the Highlands. We are really looking forward to developing new audiences and opportunities for artists within the Inverness Creative Academy project. It will also be fantastic to invite the public inside the building to see contemporary artworks within the beautifully refurbished gym hall space.“
The launch of their inaugral exhibition ‘Parade‘ features works by nine artists spanning Highland, Moray, Orkney, Aberdeenshire, Glasgow and London including both established artists and recent graduates.
