Feel the Force of Culture

A multi-strand project rethinking the work of one of Lake District's most famous residents, 19th Century polymath John Ruskin, in a contemporary context.

This body of work built particularly on his later writings and actions that move away from conventional aesthetics towards a complex of radical and moral activity that incorporated performance, lectures, activism, politics, sociology, agriculture and art.

As part of this body of work we made contributions to the exhibitions Can Art Save Us? at the Millennium Gallery, Sheffield, and Abstract Cabinet Show, Eastside Projects, Birmingham.
