Not Alone: a touring exhibition

Golden Thread Gallery’s unique touring exhibition, Not Alone, created for our strange, new, transformed world continues on its journey in 2021. With isolation measures, travel restrictions and quarantine rules affecting art exhibitions and collaborations in every way, GTG Director Peter Richards was inspired by a fragment of a classic song to imagine a visual arts message in a bottle.

Not Alone features new work by eight of the most exciting artists working on this island, in response to the state of the world right now: Sharon Kelly, Clare Gallagher, Joy Gerrard, Graham Gingles, Ailbhe Greaney, John Rainey, Megan Doherty and Chloe Austin.

Each artwork was created to be tiny or portable enough to fit together inside a glass bottle and travel to different curators around Europe. Each curator will mount their own version of the exhibition in their own home. Its first destination is Bologna, Italy.

Find out more about the artists and the exhibition here, and follow its journey and different realisations over the next 12 months on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Supported by Arts Council Northern Ireland & Belfast City Council.
