Personal Relations - International Miniature Portrait Exhibition
Curated by hARTslane (Cristiana Bottigella and London Group member Tisna Westerhof)
Personal Relations intends to create unexpected and appealing international cultural bridges and to foster a sense of unity and collaboration across Europe. The project presents a collection of new works, the size of a mobile phone, created by artist members of different international artists' associations. Just as miniature portraits were originally given as political gifts to kings or queens, the project aims to strengthen international bonds on an artistic level. The miniature portraits will be presented in London at The Cello Factory, in December 2016. The touring exhibition will then travel to The Hague (The Netherlands, February 2017), Vicenza (Italy, April 2017) and elsewhere in Europe and beyond.
The touring exhibition:
On Thursday 8th December, 7.30pm there will be a concert by The Collective at the Cello Factory
And on Monday 12th December at 6.30pm there will be Artists' Talks by members of The London Group
Please see the dedicated Personal Relations website for more information on the overseas shows and details of the exhibitions for this exciting ongoing project.
The Principle of Sufficient Irritation, The London Group Open Prize Exhibition
Cadi Froehlich, Martin Heron and Darren Nisbett
A new exhibition at London's Cello Factory this November will engage anyone fascinated by anomalies in the built environment, and the possibilities inherent in discarded industrial materials. The exhibtion brings together the work of three artists who were winners at last year's Open. Two of them went on to join the group this year. All three artists transform discarded metals, reclaimed materials, and demolished places, re-animating them with new narratives and personalities. The exhibition is titled after a Philip K. Dick short story.
