Pam Hall’s creative and social engagement with community is a long-standing and significant part of her artistic practice. She invites members of the public to be creative collaborators – among these, a medical school, a fish processing plant and a small rural parish hall. The house – with all of its physical, emotional, cultural, social and gendered connotations – is the broad theme of this exhibition. The works, both displayed and performed, represent the union of Hall’s solitary and collaborative practices.

Guest curated by Dr. Melinda Pinfold
