Select Dream aims to bring local artists from the south coast (and the surrounding areas) together for a temporary street level exhibition. The exhibition will wrap around the ground floor window display areas of the old Knight & Lee department store in Southsea. The artwork would be produced on vinyl and will fill the full frame of the display windows, making it accessible and highly visible within the shopping district. The project also aims to give local residents and shoppers something visually stimulating to look at whilst the building is in transition.

Theme:

The show will bring together artists who either utilise or reference domestic, everyday items, architecture or aspects of day to day living. Perhaps some of the objects, would have been available to buy in the store before closure, however rather than this being a conventional still life show, the objects have somehow transcended their original form. The result of this being surreal, ethereal, humorous, engaging, and impactful from street level. A much needed respite from the negativity of Covid-19 and the current state of the high street.
