Everyday Anomaly | 9 Sep – 15 Oct 2017
Normality, an idea so ingrained in culture that it feels like truth, is an invention of nineteenth century Europe. Originating in statistics, norms first entered language and culture as a means to describe the distribution of human characteristics, a way to talk about bodies and behaviours on a grand scale that quickly became synonymous with their typical forms. But it’s a slim line between an average and an ideal at the best of times: what’s true for many can too easily become what should be true for all. Today we’re most familiar with the norm as a standard by which we judge ourselves and each other. Normality is conditioned, and it is conditional.


Analogue #V ~ Cheryl Traub Adler | 3 Aug – 30 Sep 2017
Inspired by Mount Analogue, the last unfinished novel by René Daumal and the idea that art and spirituality are deeply connected. The creative journey is analogous to climbing a mountain.

Unfinished Stories: Post-Pop Monologues With Dialogic Intent | 10 August – 30 September 2017
In the post-pop world of consumer-driven monologues of selfhood – of blogs and vlogs and selfie-sticks – we ache for dialogue with our peers: drawing, scribbling, typing, photoshopping, picture-snapping, instagramming and collaging, putting it out there in search of the other who will understand exactly what we are trying to say. Comics, murals, Youtube animations, assemblages of all kinds. Unfinished Stories, all.

The Thirsty Oyster Tavern
Legend has it that old Rasta on the Roof found this shipwreck in the Old Harbour and turned it into a pub and restaurant called ‘The Thirsty Oyster Tavern’, where, to quote him, ‘home is where the anchor drops’. So why not drop anchor here for a while, crack open that careworn shell and slip into our relaxed and friendly ambiance – whether it be in the cool breezes of summer or by the warm, cosy fires in winter – we have 3 fireplaces to ensure you stay nice and warm. And that infamous South Easter? Don’t fuss! We’re pretty sheltered, tucked in as we are, between the Naval College and the National Sea Rescue facility.
