In collaboration with 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning and Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, we are pleased to bring you ‘States of Being: Constructing Identities’, showcasing work from a range of distinct artists.
The exhibition explores how each person constructs an identity and a reality for him or herself from a puzzle of chosen and predetermined pieces and how they represent it to the outside world. This topic is particularly relevant in the city of London with its diverse and continuously fluctuating population, where individuals import, defend, assimilate, or discard parts of their identities to find a sense of belonging.
The artists Chloe Sachikonye, Françoise Dupré, Brian Lobel, Dilesh Patel, Emilia Hapka, Nikolai Boyce and Yunie Sze make for an exciting combination of young and established artists. Their work explores family histories, gender, cultural identities and the self in relation to others in various mediums. We hope to inspire and engage the local community and the wider public in a discussion about identity through contemporary art, performances, talks and workshops.
