The Notice Board is a contemporary visual art project showcasing the editioned work of international artists in two public venues in Uffington, Lincolnshire. The Notice Board features month-long exhibitions on the theme The Lands of the Free? Its ambition is to connect audiences to the work of artists whilst offering unusual sites for artists to showcase work.
The sites are an A1 sized Notice Board and 5m high Flag Pole hosted in artist Kate Genever’s front garden. Both sites hold prominent positions in the centre of Uffington village on the A1175.
The launch is represented by Letter K/I wish to communicate with you, Naval Flag. The follow-up shows are an Ai Weiwei flag and then a print by Katie Numi Usher from Belize.
The Notice Board is part of a larger project titled The Lands of the Free?, which takes 2 ambitions / statements as it starting point. In 1978 Václav Havel stated that the oppressed always contain ‘within themselves the power to remedy their own powerlessness’. He was referring to individuals living under communism. He went on to coach them to go about their daily activities as if communism did not exist. In another context anthropologist Tim Ingold’s proposed ‘Improvisation, celebrates the freedom of human imagination to transcend the determinations of both nature and society’.
