Tonight Forget About Your Houses and Cars

 


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Group summer show with works by artists Ahmed Alsoudani, Dan Colen, Tobias Collier, Christoph Draeger, Doug Fishbone, Neil Hamon, Shinichi Hara, Justin Lieberman, Bernhard Martin, Ivan Navarro, Matt O'dell, Christoph Schmidberger, Guy Richards Smit.

This exhibition will examine our enduring vision of the end of the world and its increasing prominence within our collective consciousness. Exhibited works will discuss the fate of the planet against the current climate of man-made and natural disaster and consider the constant state of dread in which we already exist, endorsed by the media's drip-feed of apocalyptic imag! ery.

The desire reconcile our ultimate end has long been a preoccupation of alchemists and artists - consider Newton's predictions, Nostradamos' oblique prophesies, Durer's doomsday depictions or Bruegel's allegorical studies of death and the human condition. Tonight forget about your houses and cars will look at the contemporary artist as visionary, as an intuitive and analytical force in our complex modern day society, seers to guide us toward our uncertain future.

The show is to be co-curated with Katie Kitamura.
