Black Hole

The Black Hole Club is an artist group based at Vivid Projects, a collaborative space supporting media arts practice. Based in Birmingham, we encourage innovation, risk and experimentation in artistic practice and work with artists and producers across disciplines. Who deliver a regular public programme of events and exhibitions on and off-site and support the regional creative community through Black Hole Club.

The Black Hole Club is our membership programme for creative people – artists, designers, curators and writers and more – in the West Midlands to share and test ideas. Members receive support in developing their practice and will be encouraged to explore new areas, including but not limited to digital art, live performance, experimental audio, film and video, animation and computer-generated art.

Part of Treeline, Artists from the Black Hole club are visiting Birmingham’s Biophilic city partners in both Oslo and Vitoria-Gasteiz to set up the network.  Artists will meet with artist and artist curators in the cities as well as city and regional government representatives to agree an exchange programme of activities between us. The project is based on Global environmental change and the new science of Biomimicry, an approach to innovation that seeks sustainable solutions to human challenges by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies. We will produce a blog about activity carried out to share learning and progress with the artists’ community.
