Event History

Fringe Arts Bath organises Bath’s only Visual Arts festival, and is part of, but  run independently from, Bath Fringe Festival. We promote contemporary  art in the B&NES region, supporting early career artists and curators, and  those who find it difficult to break into (or prefer to operate outside of) the  gallery based art scene. FaB is a not for profit voluntary organisation, and  our volunteers gain valuable experience in all aspects of running an Arts  organisation.  FaB works with regional Arts and Community organisations, and  collaborations vary in scope from the provision of exhibition space and  inclusion in FaB’s annual Visual Arts Programme to close involvement in  project development. Collaborators include Keynsham Arts, the Big Issue,  The Holburne Museum, Bath University and Creativity Works.  FaB uses unusual exhibition spaces, from street corners to empty shops  and cafés, taking art to people who would not normally visit galleries.  

21st century Neanderthal is research into today’s online dating world seen through artists’ eyes, mixed with every day’s righteousness and immorality.

The impersonality of online dating caused us to question the behaviour of current society. We invite artists to step into this digital world where fantasy and reality blur, where the lines cross and the perfect version of the truth is never quite what it seems. Communication is contorted as the rules no longer apply.

Things are sometimes easier to understand if they are put into an art form. Some rough experiences may be overcome when one takes time to transform them into art. The unsuspecting dating site users might become warned of potential dangers or distressing situations. Someone might just be sharing their hilarious story of a disastrous date that they will be telling their grandchildren.

This exhibition challenges and exposes these online experiences through art, engaging visitors to share their own.

Curated by Nina Jesih.
