At RISE we strongly value contributing to the community with our experience and expertise. Many of our staff have a background in the Arts and therefore supporting this sector is a cause close to our hearts.
We are Corporate Partners for the Museum of Modern Art Oxford (MOA) and have been continuously supporting their development. The MOA is currently refurbishing and extending their current space, and we have been helping them with the Arts Council Application and feasibility study for this project.
Our most recent collaboration is the sponsorship of the Notice! Exhibition. Charting the complete graphic design history of the gallery, this exhibition is a photographic trompe l’oeil of around 400 unique posters from the Modern Art Oxford archive. From Space Place in 1966 to Friedrich Kunath’s Raymond Moody’s Blues in 2013, it will provide visitors with opportunities to explore Modern Art Oxford’s programme since its inception.
The exhibition offers a review of the social and political function of both contemporary art and the art gallery in society through its design and identity in print, and the shifting agendas of institutions like Modern Art Oxford in relation to culture, artists and audiences.
The exhibition will run until the 2nd February 2014.
