Harfleet & Jack were recently invited to select and curate Cube’s first annual OPEN Competition. The competition was open to any creative; applicants were asked to respond to the theme of the Urban Built Environment. Paul Harfleet and Hilary Jack made a selection from 250 submissions this number was subsequently narrowed down to 14 practitioners who were thought to best convey the contemporary insights and thoughts on the given theme. A selection was subsequently made of three artists, Robin Maurice (Image above) and Michael James Jones were selected as runners up, and a residency at CUBE was awarded to Rich White ( 'Passage' by Rich White, bottom photograph by Nico Lloyd).

The selection of artists made for CUBE’s first OPEN exhibition represents practitioners working across media that explore the urban built environment in fascinating and ingenious ways. The work presented offers a joyful celebration of the metropolis whilst simultaneously revelling in a dark dystopian vision; the resulting exhibition reveals the complex relationships that artists have with the city today.
