3-15 October 2017
EO6 asks serious questions about artists contemporary practice and their place within art history’s foundations by dealing in the tropes of Photography, Abstract and Urban Expressionism, Surrealism, Modernist regard for material, with a Postmodern ease in mixing references. The artists work to establish a distance between themselves and their work to create the void which allows them to reflect on and then push at the boundaries, the edges of their practices. Sculpture, installation, painting, printmaking and photography.
Richard Brayshaw, Andrea Coltman, Charlie Dillon, Naya Eleftheriou, Pamela Gerrie, Joanna Gilbert, Gail Olding, Maria Vesterinen. Curated by Charlie Dillon and Gail Olding. Apart of Whitechapel Gallery’s First Thursdays programme. Private View: Thursday 5 October 6-10pm.
