10th January - 2nd February 2008  

Think Tank is a group of nine european writers engaged with the applied arts from Austria, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands and the UK. We meet twice a year to discuss a theme and present an exhibition. For our fourth year the theme was 'Gift'. This exhibition presents sixteen artists who explore this in a variety of media and with a panoply of approaches. The gift connects people. It can be benevolent, a site of reciprocity or a place of dissonance. Gift looks at the 'gift' of the readymade, the place of the commodity in the applied arts, and the social sit of practice.
