The Caravan Gallery

The Caravan Gallery is a mobile exhibition venue and visual arts project run by artists Jan Williams and Chris Teasdale who record ordinary and extraordinary details of life in 21st century Britain. As they say: "Eager to examine clichés and cultural trends, they are particularly drawn to absurd anomalies and curious juxtapositions, typical of places in transition and in the process of reinventing themselves." This is how they describe the Caravan Gallery itself:
"The Caravan Gallery, a diminutive mustard model (circa 1969), with white walls and beech floor on the inside (like a ‘real’ gallery), provides the perfect setting for an evolving exhibition of photographs made in response to places visited; at any one venue, location-specific work arising from a previous research visit is exhibited alongside other material from the Caravan Gallery archive."
The Caravan Gallery exhibits at an eclectic range of locations, rural, urban and suburban, from small-scale community events to major festivals and venues. The site - which explains their other work, including some unusual surveys - is well worth having a good nose around.

  1. The Caravan Gallery is a mobile Gallery and it is useful for those who can't travel and if you want to promote your art so these kinds of mobile Gallery are really important. People who are living in villages they will seriously appreciate your effort.
