Contemporary - Mixed Medium

Nine Artist Group Show - letter like shapes word like sequences

Wed-Fri: 12-6pm; Sat: 12-5pm

The works in this exhibition present a biodiversity of forms. Two of the artists in the show, Rita Donagh and Gillian Wise, were among the curators of the Hayward Annual 1978, the first to be curated by women.

Artists: Ajamu, Biogal, Ian Breakwell, Oisín Byrne, Rita Donagh, Kasra Jalilipour, Adrian Morris, Annie Ratti & Gillian Wise

The curatorial team took a networked approach to selecting: ‘It began with artists already known by the selectors, spiralled out to others they were told about, and then to artists who applied by letter.’ The group of artists chosen for this exhibition is the result of a similarly mycelial approach. It includes artists who share a notion of collaboration in variously broaching the realms of sociology, science, nature and language, while working within a systemic framework.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a publication with texts by Biogal, artist, writer and performer and Francis Halsall, whose book Contemporary Art, Systems and the Aesthetics of Dispersion, was published recently by Routledge.
