48 Badges

04 June 2018 - 18 August 2018

Throughout the exhibition | Tuesday to Friday 11am-5pm, Saturday 11am-4pm

48 Badges is an interactive artwork developed by artist collective Stair/Slide/Space in collaboration with the Gallery Assistants at John Hansard Gallery. The work aims to pose questions and initiate conversation based on the work of Gerhard Richter, the title referencing Richter's artwork 48 Portraits, on display in our Barker-Mill Gallery space.

The badges, developed and worn by the Gallery Assistants, will pose 48 questions to visitors that will explore the ambiguous, and at times difficult, subject matter of Richter's work. The piece also invites visitors to 'leave a badge, take a badge', based on their own responses to the exhibition, hoping to create an atmosphere of open dialogue within the space.
