[PR] Ben Long, 'Great Travelling Art Exhibition'
‘The Great Travelling Art Exhibition’ is an ongoing public art project that was started in 2001. Under this umbrella title, Ben Long devises activities that attempt to engage an audience who might otherwise have little or no involvement in the visual arts.
The exhibition at Man&Eve will bring to light a portfolio of finished works and works in progress including prints, models and documentary films of Long’s recently completed 20 ft high ‘Dog Scaffolding Sculpture (Puppy)’. The Scaffolding Sculpture series of work is the second phase of ‘The Great Travelling Art Exhibition’, the first being the popular drawings he made on trucks at New Covent Garden Market.
“By doing this I hope to make art a surprising and integral part of our everyday lives and to encourage individual growth through involvement and participation in the project.”
‘A talk with the great travelling artist’ or ‘I wish this truck was as dirty as my wife’ will take place at Man&Eve on the 5th October at 19.00.
