Cultivate is of course mostly about physical gallery shows, open doors, people, conversations, interaction, the art of hanging things on actual walls for actual people in actual spaces (or standing art on floors, or projecting art or letting people perform within them), but we do also, as an addition to the focus on physical events, run on-line shows. The first, a group show called Red opened back in February 2017, the latest shows, Burst, Impart, Book and Deflect opened in the first four months of 2022
All 22 carefully curated cultivated on-line shows can be viewed via our sister site, the Organ magazine website, this link will take you to them all. Do run the slide shows, we tried to keep it nice and simple, all about running the slide show viewing it all on a decent sized monitor, something a little more respectful of the art than a phone can ever be and then heading for the websites of the artists who interest you.

UPDATE: March 7th 2022 – We took a break after Saturation, partly to focus on some of our own art and partly to give everyone a break. We like how these reccent on-line shows have worked though, we said we’d be back with the first of the 2022 shows, Deflect, on Tuesday January 11th and indeed Deflect did open that night, almost 24 hours on from the opening of the show and it had been viewed just over 20,000 times by people from all over the globe. There’s certainly a place for these on-line shows, view Deflect here.
A second on-line show of 2022 opened on February 22nd 2022, a show called Book, this time with a theme, view Book here. It is our intention to run monthly on-line shows again during 2022, Impart will open on March 15th. And there is now a companion show to Book. Books (a companion exhibition) can be viewed here
The Saturation show is now open and can be explored via this link right here. We’ran an on-line show every month for the first six months of 2021, six shows felt like quite a run, we did toy with the idea of making the shows monthly for the entire year but it does feel like everyone needs a greak now. These 15 or so Covid-ravaged month havebeen tough, the on-line shows felt right but now we need to get back out there for a bit, there will be more on-line shows. Do enjoy the Saturation show, we’re rather pleased with it, we’re rather pleased with all the show (and all the resulting engagement), we have no plans to close any of the shows, why would we?
Still opened on Tuesday May 25th, once again a grou pshow and once again 35 invited artists from all over the world. Another (now monthly?) edition of what has now bwecome a series of carefully curated group shows. The Still show is now open and can be explored via this link right here
Next (Au Suivant) – Opening night Tuesday April 20th 2021 – Another Cultivate on-line group show, a maximalist thing, it does kind of look like these we are curating these thngs on a monthly basis now, we being myself and fellow Cultivate founding artist Emma Harvey, Next features 38 artists from all over the land and indeed the globe, over 200 pieces of art. There is a pleasure in pulling these shows and these artists together. Once an on-line show opens it stays open, we see no reason to close any of them, Next can be viewed here via this link
