Join us for RIPE Live: Ripe Plums #02 / The Slow Cancellation of Practice, as we celebrate RIPE artists past and present at this exciting launch event.

Visit the Ripe Plums #02 exhibition, the second in a two-part showcase of outstanding work by a group of recent graduates from Solent University and Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton. The project will provide an opportunity for a group of emerging artists to exhibit a recent body of work in a new space, the Alfred Arcade. The artists will meet, exhibit and engage in critical debate; forming networks and friendships to help them sustain a fruitful visual arts practice here in Southampton.

RIPE alumni Maryam Zahra Kazimi will also be launching ‘The Slow Cancellation of Practice’, a new exhibition on display in the windows of the Hidden Wardrobe, which explores the conceptual anxiety and stasis inherently found within art practice.

You can grab a drink and enjoy some music at The Alfred Arcade, where the Postmen will be performing from 8pm.

The launch will take place from 6pm – 10pm on Old Northam Road. Get your free ticket on Eventbrite here
