Welcome to the Alertism exhibition, featuring artistic and literary works that were inspired by the Emergency Alert test message that was sent to people with a mobile device on Sunday 23rd April at 3pm.
María Celina Val is one of those exciting creative minds that we have been eager to work with since she first performed at the European Poetry Festival in 2020 and subsequently for Saatchi Lates, at the Saatchi Gallery. It was a defining year for María Celina, with the release of two excellent publications Children draw fivelfold stars, and Myth & Metamorphosis (Penteract Press). Here she gives us a glimpse of a world where communication is both art and constellation. Our First Responder is Terence Collie, the jazz pianist, composer and creative force in his own right. Read his thoughts below.
