New Year’s Obstructions, online, 20 January 2021, free entry - Visit now

Is there something you have wanted to do all lockdown or a New year’s resolution you are worried you won’t get off the ground Whether it’s learning to play the piano, speak a new language, make Babbka or revisiting an old artwork; Castlefield Gallery invites you to submit your intended new venture to a panel of artists who will give you a bespoke obstruction to make it harder for you! Each online attendee will receive a bespoke obstruction from the panel of artists including: Sabrina Fuller, Parham Ghalamdar, Paddy O’Donnell, Katie Tomlinson.

The event will begin with an introduction to the Obstructions exhibition and a word from the artists about their work in it. This will be followed by a discussion of a selection of the ‘New Year’s Obstructions’ given out, considering how obstacles can aid creativity, make learning more dynamic or help to change our perspective.
