Alexander was selected as one of six artists each of whose work was exhibited for a two-month period throughout the year in a celebration of the world’s oceans and marine environment. Hull’s year as the UK City of Culture culminated with The Deep’s exhibition.
The works of Fish & Olive were exhibited, in January 2013, at the National Art Center in Tokyo, representing Greece.
