Like many of the exhibitions opening online these days, this one was initially intended to take place in a physical setting. The digital format has given us an opportunity to reflect on our process; how we gather ideas and tie them together. It has been gratifying to create something intangible that feels truly shareable. Like Fillipus Sheehama’s artwork Green Cards, this exhibition has come together like a patchwork. These artworks reflect the artists' experiences of the world, weaving together the personal and the political, playing between abstraction and representation. Similarly the format of this exhibtion has been pulled and pushed by the digital media we are using to present it. In this new venue, curation has never felt more like collage with a seamless scroll lending itself neatly to the stacked 'salon format'. On the other hand flat screens can feel quite slick and alien, so we have included clips of audio throughout in an attempt to bring a bit of rawness back to the experience. We hope you enjoy the show.
