For Art Sheffield 2013, Site Gallery will be showcasing the work of three artists including Mikhail Karikis’ new film Children of Unquiet, which is a collaboration with a group of children living in near-abandoned labourers’ villages below the geo-thermal factories of The Devil’s Valley in Northern Italy. Urs Fischer’s Money Bowl invites audiences to exchange small change, mixing defunct coins together with today’s currency, highlighting the transitory values of the currency system that international market forces depend upon. The legacy of artists working within industry is explored in a presentation of sculpture by Garth Evans, which he developed following a residency with the British Steel Corporation. Personal photographs and documents from Tate’s Artist Placement Group archives accompany the work and tell the administrative story of his experience.
In addition to our usual hours we will be open on Sunday 6 October from 11am-6pm, and throughout the festival we will be staying open until 6pm.
