Art Detection Service at ARC

Last night was the May offering by ARC. The blurb went like this:

Drop in at The Vaults on Wednesday 26th May from 6pm for ARC, a monthly event promoting curatorial activity in the West Midlands. This month, ARC are super excited to be joined by world-famous art busters Art Detection Services Ltd. Bringing with them their 100% accurate art-detecting machines, they’ll provide you with the answers that’ll end all questions.

Fresh from a residency at the Created in Birmingham shop, Art Detection Services are seasoned curators. The Good Art Gallery project grew from submissions by local artists – only those confirmed as art by the keen eye of the infamous art-detecting machines made it onto the gallery walls. Extending this curatorial rationale to The Vaults, Art Detection Services invite you to an exhibition of works guaranteed to be 100% good - in fact, visitors can witness the live correction of bad works until they are nothing short of good.

If you are itching to find out whether your own creations are indeed art, bring them along! Art Detection Services Ltd will scan and certify your works, free of charge. There will also be artistic supplies available in order that you can create your own work to be scanned, or correct that which is deemed bad.

Alongside the exhibition, Brum blogger Pete Ashton and creative jack-of-all-trades Matt Snowden will be providing music of a distinct 8bit bent.
