New Work - Mixed Medium
Group Show curated by Huma Kabakci - Glitch: The City as Palimpsest
Cooke Latham Gallery is delighted to announce Glitch: The City as Palimpsest, a group exhibition curated by Huma Kabakci including works by Radhika Khimji, Hamish Pearch, Shahpour Pouyan, Jaro Varga and Adia Wahid.
A palimpsest is a manuscript that has been modified or changed but that still retains traces of earlier text. In this exhibition Kabakci uses the palimpsest as a metaphor for the city; a site of multiple writings, re-writings and erasures. Working in a variety of different media the five artists negate the concept of any city as having a fixed identity and instead reveal the urban environment as existing in a constant state of flux; subject to the changing environmental, social and economic forces that define it.
