Barrelled UP at Studio 102
By Mat Martin
Watch contributor Mat Martin’s short film about Barrelled UP, a project and exhibition at Studio 102 which supported refugees and artists.
Barrelled UP saw Studio 102 select an incredible group of local artists to up-cycle barrels and canisters and turn them into beautiful pieces of artwork. The Barrels were then put up for auction at the exhibition, with proceeds being split between the Devon & Cornwall Refugee Support, the artists and the studio, supporting both the local and global communities.
Studio 102 is a new, dedicated gallery and studio space based on the Barbican. They aim to to create workspace environments that support artists’ careers and add value to the community they are based in.
