This January Hoxton Art Gallery are getting involved in the The London Art Fair this year (2013). The east London gallery can be found exhibiting at stand P14 of the Art Projects section and will be presenting the work of six of their represented artists; Beatrice Haines, HaYoung Kim(image), Julia Vogl, Nadine Feinson, Nadine Mahoney and Steven Dickie.
The press release gives us a perfect overview :
“The curatorial emphasis of the stand will be to question human beings dependence on modern technologies and the perverse and often self-destructive culture of consuming. Artworks in the exhibit will include anime inspired paintings on polyester and drafting film by HaYoung Kim, intricate and painstakingly detailed works on paper by Beatrice Haines, surreal and dreamlike oil paintings by Nadine Feinson and bold figurative works by Nadine Mahoney.”
There are a couple of events that will go on at the stand too, one being a spoken word performance by Steven Dickie as well as a sonic performance piece entitled The Uncanny Antisage. The performance will present Dickie’s exploration of human knowledge, conflating the ‘Wise Old Man’ and ‘Fool’ archetypes the artist will disclose some of his own shortcomings as well as reveal his aptitudes for certain types of understanding.
The performance will take place at the Talks Theatre,Gallery Level 2 at 6:30pm on January 17th.
