'The Red Room’ is an exploration into the colour red, by four emerging UK based artists for whom this colour is a central element of their practice.
Artists Shannon Bono (b.1996), Hannah Lim (b. 1998), Paula Turmina (b. 1991), and Georg Wilson (b. 1998), will present new works in the exhibition, each bringing their knowledge and notions of what this colour means to each of them.
Through painting and sculpture, the use of red by these artists portrays the significance of their individual cultural, historical, and personal perspectives. The title of the exhibition takes inspiration from its namesake 1879 novel by Swedish author August Strindberg, which tells the tale of a struggling author grappling with the hypocrisy of society. He finds refuge in the “bohemian” community of Stockholm, who meet in a red dining room salon to discuss philosophy and art.
