Interstitia: A cyber multiverse presents the works of 6 early career artists, graduates of the 2020 NTU Fine Art Cohort, and is the culmination of Grad Assembly, an online post graduate project developed by One Thoresby Street.

One Thoresby Street’s Graduate Project is a yearly programme, providing access and opportunities to the graduating cohort from project partner Nottingham Trent University. Typically the project offers access to OTS’ project space over the summer months, however the 2020 iteration located itself online due to the ongoing covid-19 pandemic. Enabling the project despite current restrictions due to coronavirus

Over a period of three months, Grad Assembly provided mentoring in the form of 1-2-1’s, Discussions, and Lectures from members of OTS’ artistic community. These opportunities were geared towards equipping the graduates with first hand knowledge of how to take their first steps towards a successful art practice post graduation, with topics ranging from how to get exhibitions, to ‘having your own kingdom’ and ‘being in a gang’.

Interstitia tasked the artists with adapting their practices in response to the current situation, and since November they have been developing new works that situate their existing practices within the frame of possibility presented by the use of the web. Throughout the project the artists have been encouraged to take some of their first steps into coding and web development, enabling them to create their own online realms.

The project has become an amalgamation of the group’s own conceptual spaces, a multiverse of different paths and utopian potentiality. A recurring theme of personal worlds, escapism and digital utopias runs through the online space, intersected by an undercurrent that touches on a flipsides of anxiety, information overload, and reskilling into ‘cyber’.
