Summary

Preview: 11 Jan, 6 – 8pm.

Unexpected Engagement is the first solo show by artist Jason Wilsher-Mills. The work was created during Jason’s Square Peg residency with Artlink Hull during UK City of Culture 2017.

The residency was an opportunity for an artist who identifies as disabled to work with Artlink throughout the year, responding to the Square Peg programme and Hull in general. Jason’s approach, inspired by his long history of working with communities, was to engage a wide range of different people in Hull in a series of workshops, to enable them to tell their own stories through art.

This in turn has influenced the creation of his own work for the exhibition. This residency has inspired a whole new collection of multi-media work by Jason that can be viewed and interacted with in the exhibition.

It includes characters such as ‘East Hull Elvis’, ‘The X-Factor Princess’, and ‘Mario Lanza and the Stolen Hedge Trimmer’. Artworks in the exhibition will include digitally painted wallpaper, sculpture-including augmented reality, 3D printed figures, and images in vibrant lightboxes.
