Paul Carter @ CGP London, Aug 14 – Sep 25

, 12 August 2016

Paul Carter is presenting solo exhibition Municipal at CGP London, opening August 14 and running t0 September 25.

The exhibition is the London-based artist’s largest solo show to date and is a commissioned installation developing his “ongoing interest in the unifying concept that every building designed for public use is a kind of hotel”. His focus on architecture questions its structure, function, and use. The press release asserts that “we simultaneously exist as both guest and worker” in these spaces and that all architectures are “transitory constructs, acting as anonymous, functional service providers within our daily lives”.

Carter’s questions examine the inner workings and ideologies behind municipal architecture’s “(dys)functionality, (in)convenience, limitations and social intimacy”.

The artist will also be in conversation with writer, curator, and critic, Sacha Craddock in late September.

See the CGP London website for details.**
