TRANSMISSION17 Jul - 5 Sep 2020 Online Workplace is pleased to present Transmission, a group exhibition of new and recent work by gallery artists Simeon Barclay, Marcus Coates, Jennifer Douglas, Louise Giovanelli and Laura Lancaster.

For this exhibition we have relocated the gallery to the coast - in both a nod to the sublime (an echo of Gordon’s vast, elemental architecture) and because the original street outside the gallery was destroyed.
