100 Contemporary Artists from the Aesthetica Art Prize
Future Now contains work from all 100 artists on the long-list for the Aesthetica Art Prize 2020. Images from my Decomposition series appear in this extensive record which is published to accompany the Aesthetica Art Prize and Future Now Symposium held at York St John University.
“The works inside this collection survey themes such as race and identity, technology, Dataism, surveillance culture, geopolitics and the climate crisis. We are living in uncertain times. There is so much happening on both personal and universal levels; we must take a moment to pause and try to make sense of all of this information.”
The 2020 Aesthetica Art Prize Exhibition opened at York Art Gallery on March 12th. The exhibition is temporarily closed due to social distancing and the nationwide lockdown of public locations. Here is a short video of the opening of the exhibition at York Art Gallery. Hopefully, the exhibition will open again soon. It is due to close finally on 18th July 2020.
Elevating news to start 2020. Work from my Decomposition series has been shortlisted for the 2020 Aesthetica Art Prize. It will be featured in the Aesthetica Art Prize Exhibition with 17 other artists in York Art Gallery March 13th-July 18th 2020.
