It’s been about a month since I emailed a number of sites requesting the use of canal-side space to show my large-scale poster-prints. Aside from a response from the printer, who are considering if they can sponsor the print costs, there has been silence. I’ve sent follow up emails and will look for other potential possibilities. However, I do note that these organisations are only just reawakening after Covid-19 and suspect that many staff are at least partially furloughed. I also see that the Burnley Canal Festival has again been cancelled for 2021, as has the Skipton Canal Festival – because of the uncertainties about large gatherings.
It is seeming increasingly unlikely that there will be an opportunity for a site specific show this season. I’ll move forward with the idea of a virtual show (not Kuntsmatrix!) and research how I might manage that technically.
