For its third annual exhibition, Creative agency Mill Co has once again teamed up with a sponsor and tasked a selection of image makers to create new work. This year it has teamed up with The Co-operative and the brief to the 25 contributing artists was ‘Co-operation’…

The resulting exhibition runs at the Mill Co Project  until November 23 and features work by Calverts (its contribution, shown above), Patternity, Tom Frost and Kavel Rafferty, and more.

Here are a selection of images

Many Hands by Claire Scully

by Toby Stevens

by A Two Pipe Problem

Working Together by Tom Frost

This piece by David Hazell of Curious Projects “looks at the creation of new colours through the co-operation of coloured blocks”.

Above, TwoSomes by Patrick Fry and Tom Willis is, they say, “a series of prints bringing together similar sounding words that, when all said and done, are worlds apart. A contextual juxtaposition is used to illustrate the distinction.”

Hive by Rebecca Maeve Manley
