Stuart Wilde - stuArt@60

PosterTrapezium Gallery were pleased to present stuArt@60, an retrospective exhibition by Stuart Wilde in his hometown of Bradford, to celebrate his 60 years in art,.

Stuart’s aim was to challenge what a gallery should look like and what is considered art and originality. He said of the exhibition; “ I want the space to be inviting and thought provoking, and to generate conversations about art and meaning.” His work is in many media and many styles and contains a whole range of ideas and themes. But he believes pinning these down too much would be contradictory to the creative process. “I believe things should be left ambiguous and for people to discover meanings in their own responses to the works on show.”
