Buttons Up UK , June - July 2005

Initiative by Nicola Atkinson.Davidson of NADFLY

Buttons Up Comments

 

It is the wee'st art show in the world.... well maybe not.. but quite wee and very mobile. Ten Artist & Writers create one hunderd artworks on 100 badges ( 25mm). World wide mobile sites.

 

Craig Coulthard, Sharon Roulston, Michael Visocchi, Jim Colquhoun, Jasper Hamill, Karen Dickson, Nicola Atkinson.Davidson, Emily Fogarty, Jo Wilson & Sarah Warden.

 

'NADFLY was represented at the Glasgow Art Fair 2005 by the piece, Black Suitcase from Karachi (on tour). A production-run of 100 badges stating the piece's title or the nadfly logo, was made for distribution to the public. After day one, it was realised that they were in high demand, so more were produced. After six days, 800 badges had been given out. This started me thinking, 'why not have a group show of badges?'

 

The first one is entitled, ‘Buttons Up UK' and involves the ten artists & writers I met during the six days at the Art Fair. Buttons Up is a carefree & easy way to show small works. It is both out- doors & in- doors, can be world wide and has no limits of site or location.

 

It is managed by NADFLY. Each ‘Buttons Up’ consist of one hundred badges (25mm), each featuring a unique artwork on the badge . The ten artists & writers are the masters of their own ten badges, to display however they wish, at any location or on any person. The cost of production is met by the artists and writers.' NAD
