During the three nights of the Museums at Night project 15th until 17th May 2014, which takes place across Europe, Transient-Art will temporarily become part of the Pen Museum, in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter. Fifteen artists' will explore the notion of drawing, writing and the concept of the pen, its traditions and how they are placed in modern society. The artwork will embrace the museum allowing the audience to view what they do, or join in.

Some artists will draw, some will write using pens they make, typewriters, stamps and Braille machines, which will also be open to the public to use. Other artists will project video on exhibits or alongside them, there will be live traditional ink making and a chance to make your own ink pen to use or take away. Other artworks will be made beforehand and intertwine amongst the museum, responding to the museum and Birmingham's pen making history. Evidence of what happened during the three days of the project will be on display at the museum until 15th June 2014.


Many thanks to Jon Wilkes and Sonya Russell Saunders and all of the Artists who contributed to the event.
