We Are All In This Together

A curatorial experiment... A gallery gamble... An exhibition determined by you, the artist, and the public... Without agenda or bias, refuting government and funding criteria, and not driven by the market, current taste or trend in contemporary art.
Open to all UK artists. Get involved!

Seer's Catalogue - Dave Griffiths

Bureau is pleased to announce Dave Griffiths solo show Seers Catalogue, featuring newly commissioned works and his award-winning film of the same title. Utilising Griffiths personal archive and practice around the history of the cue-dot, the works commemorate the mechanical flux of celluloid, and reflect on our urge to hoard and recombine media relics in intimate acts of collective memory.
