From poetry and dance, to beam particle simulations and abstract architecture, discover Flow, an interdisciplinary exhibition exploring ideas and creativity.

Modern Art Oxford and Oxford Brookes University are proud to present Flow, the first collaborative exhibition co-curated by Modern Art Oxford volunteers. Celebrating a range of work by people across Oxfordshire, the exhibition asks us to question where our ideas come from.

Featured works were selected from a county-wide call-out for images, sounds, text and objects that reflect individual experiences of being in creative ‘flow’.

Flow demonstrates that our own creative process is distinctive to us all, and highlights the need for creativity in uncertain times.

Live from 4 September, this online exhibition features stories, research and behind-the-scenes insights into this unique collaborative project.


Flow selected artists are: Mariana Acevedo, Sue Chamberlin, Maisy Charlett, Mark Clay, Claudia Collett, Angela Edward, Jake Flowerdew, David Gasca, Charlotte Grocutt, Kate Hipkiss, Mirren Kessling, Claire Leech, Julia Mallaby, Simon Mandarino, Kashmira Patel, Hamideh Rimaz, Saskia Saunders, Ella Shepard.

Flow is co-curated by: Russell Antcliff, Jack Carrera, Elvira Faizova, Natalia Murashova, Laila Pipara, Deborah Pill, Maria Robertson, Jeremy Servian, Lillian Tranborg, with Creative Associate, Laura Purseglove.
