/664: Spring Show by Fine Art students at the University of Northampton
- 27 March — 1 April 2015 *on now
/664 includes a wide variety of art works from twenty-six students. The participants sub-divided themselves into three groups, each of which was allocated a different time restraint in which to make work specifically for the exhibition. The time limits set were 1 hour, 12 hours or 24 hours. With each of the twenty-six participants choosing one of these time restraints, the combined working hours came to 664, explaining the exhibition title. The participants were allowed to develop their own motives and themes for the works, but all share the condition of working no longer than their chosen time restraint.
