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. The exhibition is due to reopen in early December 2020 and continue at York Art Gallery until February 2021.
Shortly after Easter the Central London Group of London Independent Photography present their 2019 exhibition at Espacio Gallery in Bethnal Green Road. I am very pleased to have my work included again this year in this their 7th annual show.
Friday April 13th will be the last Open Studios at Bow Arts Rum Factory in Wapping. The building is being closed at the end of May. It’s been a fantastic place to work over the past couple of years. Now time to move on to pastures new. Join us all on Friday evening for a goodbye show and visit me in Studio 13.
