Shedshow (1, 2 and 3)

Another item for the Sheds As Art folder, the three Shedshows which were held in 2005 and 2006 at various UK venues asked artists, photographers, designers, modelmakers and illustrators to design their ideal shed and/or fill it with artwork. Initially inspired by William Morris’s novel News from Nowhere, the three shows (click here for 1, here for 2, and here for 3), grew increasingly large and the final show featured sheds by staff and students from the Visual Communication Department at Birmingham Institute of Art and Design and included drawings, models, tightly scribbled plans, cages and collections of bottled memorabilia.Well worth a long browse.
