Backlit was established in 2008 as a voluntary organisation with the aim of providing graduates with an exploratory curatorial space. Priorities include exhibitions, ‘Backrit’ critical sessions, affordable artist spaces, collaborative cross-artform working, workshops and skills development opportunities for new and emerging artists.

An annual group show consisting of Backlit members that brings together varied practice in which artists are invited to collaborate and produce new commissioned work. MASS approaches the traditional group show with daring experiments in co-production that coalesce notions of: artist labour, materiality, re-enactment, volume, accumulation, veneration and dismissal. Exhibiting artists will be providing gallery tours every Saturday to discuss their practice and the themes of the exhibition.
Featuring works by;
Connor Brazier, Matthew Chesney, Matthew Collins, Daniel Evans-Pughe, Anthony Fletcher, Ashley David Gallant, Lois Gardner Sabet, Sara Gaynor, Nick Gear, Tracey Kershaw, Gemma Land, Rosemary MacLennan, Jake Moore, Sophia Ogonda, Demi Overton, Jon Pask, Daniel Rapley, Martin Rayment, Antonietta Sacco, Mo Scott, Alison Whitmore, Hannah Whitlow, Jade Williams, and Tom Woodcock.
