Enrich your students’ learning journey with Buxton Contemporary’s dynamic exhibitions tours and visit programs made just for schools.

Upcoming Exhibition | The same crowd never gathers twice

 Join us from May until October 2024 for this dynamic group exhibition.

Spanning moving image, sound, sculptural intervention and performance, The same crowd never gathers twice tests the limits of the ‘arena’— the setting where we come together to witness and participate in public life. Works consider the social and structural architectures that bind these spaces, and by extension, the elastic relationship between performance and reality, audience and participant. The exhibition invites visitors to consider their presence and agency inside the gallery, and the potential for more active forms of engagement.
