SAVORR presents DOMINO, a four-week public arts programme based at The Shoe Factory. DOMINO will bring together artists, galleries and curators from different regions, with the aim of strengthening, promoting and cultivating the Norwich arts scene, while expanding links with other UK cities outside of London.
DOMINO is proposed as the first of a sequence of SAVORR led programmes that will launch a self-supporting network with other regional art scenes. Here, two artists from Birmingham, Brian J Morrison and Emily Warner, have been invited to create new work for the first floor of The Shoe Factory. Working in dialogue with contemporary art critic Jonathan P. Watts, the progression of the invited artists’ ideas will be documented and such material will be on display for visitor insight and discussion.
Documentation of these activities will be also be archived in a printed publication, supported by the East Anglia Art Fund, and launched at the DOMINO closing event. With DOMINO as the first in the series, SAVORR hopes to go on to approach artists in other cities in a similar manner, creating a working grid between Norwich and the rest of the UK.
DOMINO will be open from Thursday-Saturday 12am-6pm from 18th February-12th March, with weekly talks, performances and screenings each Friday evening. The full schedule will be announced at the beginning of February.
