Exhibition, Lisson Gallery, London, UK, 17 July – 5 September
Brought together are 10 international artists working in close intellectual proximity to one another, articulating a group dynamic built upon multifaceted working methods, collaboration, and an interest in material transformation. The exhibition features performance, film, painting, and sculpture, and points to a way of working informed by the vernacular of technological landscapes and an openness to collaborative exchange. Establishing a timely discourse that poses questions about the dissemination of information and the use of language as a material, The boys the girls and the political encourages a fluid and immersive reading of the manner in which these artists work.
