Space/Form is a group exhibition curated by Sven Davis, the UK Director for the online arts magazine, Arrested Motion. The show opens at Breeze Block Gallery in Portland on September 6, 2012 and runs through till September 29, 2012.
As one of the key sponsors of Space//Form, Ampersand Art Supply provided a custom made panel for each of the artists to produce their own unique art piece for the show. Ampersand’s unique surface coatings allow each artist to experiment and further their creative expression beyond what can be done on an ordinary stretched canvas.
Space//Form centers around notions of the architectural landscape. Over 100 of the most relevant young contemporary artists were each given an identical 10×10 inch panel and invited to create a work depicting their interpretation of space and form within either the constructed or the natural environment.

Space//Form explores the constructed and natural environment while also serving as a comparative exercise in how different individuals respond to a single set of prescribed criteria. All of the participating artists were given the same commission guidelines and an identical surface material to work with. Each unique interpretation of the brief has led to the creation of a new artwork specifically for the show. The disciplines of art and architecture traditionally enjoy a symbiotic relationship, and the parallels run deep between the conception and realization of an architectural project and the Space//Form exhibition itself.
