A trip to Coventry

Yesterday I took a trip to Coventry to check out two new contemporary art spaces in the city.

The first was Fargo Space project, which has been running successfully now for several months. Like TROVE, the programme has a month by month turn around, with May being home to Black Spot. And here are some images of the space and their work...

It was also the launch last night of new exhibition space and studios, Meter Room. It is run by Brighton's Grey Area Director, and the first show was by Paige Perkins.

Where the gallery got its name...
