A new exhibition opening in Project Space Plus, the inspiring new gallery space at the University of Lincoln's £11 million Art and Design Building, bringing together a diverse range of contemporary artists who either use or are influenced by ideas of mechanisation. From the first daubings of pre-historic caves, through the invention of the camera obscura and ready-made oil paint in tubes, to the use of digital media, artists have been among the first to embrace and exploit new technologies. Since the late 1950s/early 60s artists have involved the manufacture of machines to produce their artistic 'products'. Where Jean Tinguely led the way, artists as diverse as Rebecca Horn, Chris Burden, Roxy Paine, Damien Hirst and the artists in this exhibition have followed.
Lincoln Performing Arts Centre is a modern theatre in the city centre, with a great range of shows and a friendly cafe bar. We are walking distance from High Street shopping and the restaurants on the Brayford Pool waterfront, you will also find plenty of parking nearby.
