Fast Moving Consumer Goods at Talbot Gallery


Fast Moving Consumer Goods 

Talbot Gallery

December 2012

Curated by Claire Halpin and Elaine Grainger


For its Fast Moving Consumer Goods exhibition, Talbot Gallery invited over 40 artists to create a new artwork using the stock of the discount shops as a rich seam of inspiration. There were no restrictions on the form the artwork could take other than it must be predominantly constructed or made from items purchased from a discount shop. We asked artists to be as innovative as possible, to push the boundaries of their usual practice and push the potential of the materials and media for their artwork. As this show is a reflection of the current climate, the pricing of the work reflected accordingly.
