In celebration of Contemporary at Blue Star’s 30th birthday, Homage pays tribute to the exhibition that started it all back in June of 1986, The Blue Star Exhibition. The selected artists were asked to respond to an artwork from the original exhibition, but were only given the title and description details, and prompted to make a new work inspired by these details, without ever having seen the original work. The new artworks range from screenprints to video work to sculpture, providing an interesting take on the exhibition that was the inception of Contemporary at Blue Star.
