Hatchspace is pleased to announce an exhibition showcasing a group
of emerging artists which have been selected and co-curated by
Theresa Bruno and Lucy Lopez.
The show has been loosely themed around the concept of The Artist.
Today’s art world exists as a global commercialised network where
the artists themselves are not always the spotlight of their own
shows. Art is a system which is supported by dealers, curators,
editors, collectors; with this show we explore the idea of how/
where/why artists exist today. The artists themselves have been
given the opportunity to respond to this theme in the broadest
sense; this exhibition is a collection of their experiments.
The Artist as exhibition showcases some of the best young artists
and recent graduates working in London and further afield.
Existing independent of commercial pressure, it will be a space
where the artists are encouraged to explore artistic freedom and
exhibit their exploratory successes and failures over producing
sellable objects. For this reason the curators have tried to keep
the theme as loose as possible, giving the artist complete freedom
in what to make/explore within their language.
We actively encourage the audience to partake in the conversation
whilst visiting the gallery and welcome you to approach/contact
any artists to talk about their work.
