MAYDAY: An open exhibition for open times

Mayday has many meanings. It celebrates International Workers’ Day. Its roots are in pagan celebration of the vital shift into Summer. It is also m’aider – a signal of distress, a cry for help.

Inspired to make new work in the face of the urgent times, Artspace gallery shows the responses to our open call for works that reflect upon the state we’re in and imagined future alternatives.

Exhibition opens on Friday 26th May 6-8pm, all welcome.

Continues 27th & 28th May 2-6pm.


Works will be auctioned with sealed bids starting at £10 each, in support of emergency relief funds.

An exhibition by Idit Nathan and Sarah Wood

Can what’s discarded today gift future-vision? 

For this year’s Cambridge Festival, artists Idit Nathan and Sarah Wood will conduct an art experiment. Throughout the Festival, they will respond each day to a single art manifesto directed towards the future of the planet. In return, they will make new work but only using the casually discarded material they find around them. 


Can art be made without a negative impact on the planet? This playful project is designed to test just that. Repurposing, remodelling, remaking – Nathan and Wood will reanimate what’s overlooked in today’s landscape.


The results of this art experiment will culminate in Piecing Together, an exhibition of new work at Cambridge Artspace. Visitors to the exhibition will also be invited to join in with the art experiment.
