Pavilion of Change at MK Gallery, Milton Keynes
In 2016, Wright & Vandame discovered an archival image of Milton Keynes under construction with the sign, "Changed Priorities Ahead". The image and sign communicated a message which was ambiguous and uncertain, invoking ideas of change and indeterminacy. The artists took this work as a starting point for a public sculpture for MK Gallery and the inspiration for Pavilion of Change, transforming the Project Space into a temporal space embodying ideas of change, arts education, and the past, present, and future of Milton Keynes and MK Gallery.
The framework for Pavilion of Change includes a rotating display by the artists which will change throughout the duration of the exhibition, a series of new commissions by Associate Artists at MK Gallery, participatory art works created by the public over a series of workshops and Saturday Studio sessions, and a dynamic public programme with live events, talks and screenings. Each day will provide something new, unexpected and exciting for visitors.
The artists have also commissioned a new text by Chris Hayes to accompany Pavilion of Change which can be read here.
