Brave new artists in a brave new world for New Material: living in a new material world at A.P.T. Gallery, Mar 9 – Apr 2

, 6 March 2017

The New Material: living in a new material world group exhibition is on at London’s A.P.T. Gallery, opening March 9 and running to April 2.

Curated by Tyler Mallison, the show “seeks to address the shift in the ‘material world’ from the Gen-X perspective of the mid 1980s; a time of pensive self-awareness and anxiety, to our current new material world; one of 21st century post-truth Trumpist politics and Brexit Britain”.

The show will span installation, performance, sculpture and video, and feature work by international artists, including Mallison, Robert Cervera, Russell Chater, Marieke GelissenPaul KindersleyEdith KollathNika Neelova and Michaela Zimmer who will explore and navigate their experience “against the backdrop of an increasingly challenging climate for expression and artistic production.”

The exhibition is also part of the SLAM (South London Art Map) late-night programme on March 31.
