Curated by Martin Clark, Director of Bergen Kunsthall, Art Sheffield 2016 takes as its starting point the political, social, cultural, and material histories of the city of Shefﬁeld, enacted and explored through a carefully selected group of international video, ﬁlm and sound works, as well as three major new commissions made especially for the exhibition by three British artists. The title of the exhibition, Up, Down, Top, Bottom, Strange and Charm is taken from the six ﬂavours (or types) of quark: the elementary particles that make up every atom, and the fundamental building blocks of matter.
