The Little Things is an exhibition of 70 works by 12 artists who have responded to the observations of Miranda Keeling, presented as limited edition prints.
Miranda joined Twitter in 2011 and began posting observational vignettes as @mirandakeeling. Each post was an observation of the world around her, from people waiting in cafes, to overheard snippets of conversation on the bus: the end result is somewhere between a micro-story and haiku. Her observations paint a detailed and loving portrait of the little things of everyday life.
Unsolicited, Twitter followers began illustrating her words and sending their pictures: https://mirandakeeling.com/illustrated-observations-2/ For the first time, this exhibition brings a small selection of that online response into the ‘real’ world. All pieces will be for sale.
The 12 artists exhibited here come from Liverpool, Chesterfield, Rochester, Bristol, Scotland, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland… and even London.
Artists: Welbeck Kane, Kristi Moore, Simon Heath, Mithi Shafiq, Luci Power, Trevor Ubdegrove, Ben Cameron, BECK, Danny Noble, Rob Doyle, Paul Groom and Ronald Rudolph.
