Wednesday 27th : 6pm View the first creation of our continually growing exhibition, which runs through out DE-VERSIONS. We have asked one artist from each of the last 5 years to create a FELTspace site specific work. They can either respond to the artist who works before them or completely start again. Founding Co-Director and past exhibiting artist Monte Masi kicks starts this event on the 27th.

FELTspace will also launch the January to March exhibition program for 2014.

Monte Masi: "I am inviting all current and ex-FELTspace directors to attend a private event on Monday evening at 6pm on November 25th at the FELTspace gallery entitled Trying to Remember Everything That Has Ever Happened at FELTspace.

During the event, we will do exactly as the title suggests: recording all artists, exhibitions and other activity that has occured at FELTspace since its inception in 2008. This record will be written directly onto the gallery wall at FELTspace and remain there during the de-versions festival - a series of events and 24 hour exhibitions - opening November 27th. A photograph of the event will also be produced and displayed at the November 27th opening."

Friday 29th: 6pm The second installment of our continually growing exhibition by Roy Ananda will open at 6pm and is to be followed by a sound and performance evening from 7pm featuring Alison Currie, Jason Sweeny and Wolf Panther.
