East Street Arts is proud to present Superscript : a group show with Alex Farrar, Harry Meadley and Iona Smith. Working together under the bracket of the consortium ‘A Latento’, each artist maintains their own autonomous practices, whilst corroborating as a supportive and critical body. Together, the consortium has organised exhibitions, taken residencies and produced a serial publication."

For the assessment of the artists' degrees, the exhibition was relocated to Leeds Met Gallery where it available to view for three hours, before being moved back to ESA in time for the opening of the project space.
