Projects & Events 2021
HARI took occupation of the space in May 2021, and during this year hosted six exhibitions and events.
These artists' ideas all align in different ways with HARI's remit of Research, Experimentation and Engagement.
To produce a series of plates to highlight the staff historically working at Cannon Hall, Barnsley, Sarah Pennington used the space to design and make transfers representing 40 staff and their roles, then to apply these to the plates in a production-line style of processes. Two sets of the plates were produced, 80 in total.
Creative Hull Window Display 16th-18th July
Contributing to the Absolutely Cultured 'Creative Hull' weekend, David Priestman and Sarah Pennington took a shopfront window each to show an example of their own research based work.

'K' Music Video 24th September
Showcase of MA final piece by Claire Taylor, with the music video to accompany the track 'She Sang To Me' by band Maps projected onto the wall on the first floor, and the items or legend of the film's character displayed on the ground floor space.
The Aimless Archive's Residency, unpacking and finding order within the materials collected during a particular period, engaged in conversation around these articles and the defining of archive with both invited and passing audiences. The essays written from these dialogues will be presented in HARI during 2022.
