As Many Reps As Possible is the Naughton Gallery’s third annual sports exhibition, exploring the relationship between the worlds of art and sport. The exhibition showcases some of the most exciting sports-influenced artworks being made today across a variety of media, simultaneously highlighting groundbreaking figures in the sporting world including Simone Biles, Colin Kaepernick, Ibtihaj Muhammad, Andy Murray, Megan Rapinoe, and Serena Williams. Whilst celebrating sport and sports culture, the exhibition ultimately tackles issues around gender, sexuality, religion, class, politics, and diversity within a sports context.
A selection of sports publications also feature in the exhibition – including Asphalt Chronicles, FRANCHISE, GIRLFANS, OH-SO, OOF, Racquet, SEASON, SHUKYU, and Victory Journal – in addition to a collaborative illustration project commissioned by It’s Nice That and Minute Books in celebration of the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup.
