Thoresby Street Thursdays are a series of diverse, experimental, energetic, confrontational short exhibitions to profile the existing work being produced by all current Stand Assembly studio members running from the beginning of March to the end of August. Each exhibition will feature two or three studio based and alumni artists selected for similitudes or conflicts in their practices.
