Private View Wednesday 8 October 2014, 6 – 8pm
Exhibition runs 9 October 2014 – 28 January 2015
Eighteen 2014 graduates from University of Middlesex and Goldsmiths have been selected by curatorial partnership Day+Gluckman (Lucy Day and Eliza Gluckman) to show work at Collyer Bristow Gallery housed at the London-based law firm Collyer Bristow. Curators at the gallery since 2008, Day+Gluckman chose artists they felt would resonate in the unique spaces available and were reflective of the best of contemporary visual arts practice at the two colleges.
On the opening night one artist will be selected by Emma Dexter, Director of Visual Arts at the British Council, to receive an award of £2,000 presented by Collyer Bristow.
On his project English Disco Lovers (EDL), Middlesex University graduate Chris Alton said: “The piece blends socio-political phenomenon with real life activism. Showing the project as part of the Collyer Bristow graduate exhibition is an exciting opportunity – it takes the work back to its art-fuelled roots.”
Whilst being able to gyrate with the EDL, visitors will see other diverse work including dramatic cardboard installations, lens-based interventions, exuberant nymphs, as well as other unique works in painting and photography.
The full list of artists: Chris Alton, Halgurd Baram, Steph Choy, Marcin Filip Cybulski, Sophia Freeman, Veronica de Giovanelli, Ekaterina Golubina, Trasi Henen, Kerri Jefferis, Yunsun Jung, India Mackie, Lucy Parnell, Laura Porter, Rebecca Powell, Alan Stanners, Kyungmin Son, Anya Thomas, Jany E Thomas.
