Exhibiting: Michael Dolby

Exhibiting in his home city of Sheffield for the first time in twenty years Michael Dolby, resident Forum coffee drinker is displaying a selection from a larger upcoming exhibition 'The Disaster Captialism Show'.

Mike has commented on his reasons for exhibiting in The Forum:

I’m pleased to have my work on the wall in The Forum because you can tell art in bars is art, it’s easy. Sometimes in galleries it’s difficult to tell- is that a painting on the wall in the gallery, or an ironic reference to a sculpture by a video artist. Sometimes we don’t know. Art in a bar is accessible, which is good. It can reach a wider audience. We can look or not, without feeling uncomfortable.
