MULTIPLICATION A British Council touring exhibition of Artists Multiples + 11 artists from Bulgaria
01 April 2004 - 02 May 2004
Multiplication is a new touring exhibition of artist’s multiples initiated by the British Council’s Visual Arts Department.

Many are commissioned works produced by third parties, whilst others are by artists who work solely with the concept of the multiple. In either case the challenge to the artist is in finding ways of realising an idea that can be repeated time and again. Thus part of the creative challenge comes in researching new methods and sourcing new materials, leading to some unlikely collaborations between artist and fabricators.
