From Monday 11th April, 12 Fine Art students from the University of Derby will present Interventions, a collection of site-specific artworks at Cromford Mills. The works explore the material, cultural and historical aspects of the mills’ authentic spaces and as you walk around the venue you will discover these unique pieces that have been created for, and in, the site for a limited period. You may also encounter artists involved in the production of work and have the opportunity to discuss process with them. The interventions call attention to the social dimension of industry in the landscape and demonstrate the power that Fine Art has in raising awareness of meanings associated with specific locations.
Visit Cromford Mills from Monday 11th April and encounter these artworks first-hand, engage with the pieces and with the students themselves. This collaboration has been made possible through the generous efforts of the Arkwright Society.
