New Art Gallery Walsall
30 January – 3 May 2015
Group show with Paul Chiappe, Ruth Claxton, Julie Cockburn, Ellen Gallagher, Vesna Pavlovic, Erik Kessels and John Stezaker. Curated by Zoe Lippett.
This exhibition brought together seven contemporary artists who work with found images. Transforming, cutting, embellishing, and re-working visual material sourced from the internet, flea markets, magazines, and discarded personal collections, the artists enter into the histories and narratives present in strangers’ images. The exhibition explored themes of loss, memory and mass cultural experience, as well as socially-constructed hierarchies concerning gender, race, religion and mass culture.
