London’s Studio_Leigh has invited 27 artists to explore the value of art in a group exhibition that will launch with a private viewing on September 24.
The more than two dozen participating artists—which include Cecile B. Evans, Matt Ager and Laurence Owen—taking part in the gallery’s inaugural show, provide works that consider how their individual artistic biases interact and overlap with the materiality and function of art.
“The resultant works,” the press release states, “all aim to extend the artists’ inherent visual or conceptual interests into the quotidian.” The exhibition will be accompanied by an essay from Amy Sherlock, Reviews Editor of Frieze.
