WEDNESDAY 1 FEBRUARY

Preview: MIGRATIONS

THURSDAY 2 FEBRUARY

Preview: INTEGRATION ALONE IS NOT ENOUGH

6:00 PM – 8:00 PM @ Richard Saltoun Gallery, 111 Great Titchfield Street London W1W 6RY

Taking its title from a work by Bob Cobbing, Integration Alone Is Not Enough points to the ongoing synthesis between media initiated by the concrete poetry movement – a fusion of poetry and painting, literature and sound art, typography and Eastern phenomenology – that continues in other art forms today, and relates in part to what Rosalind Krauss has called the ‘post-medium condition’, a non-hierarchical index, or entwined helix of specialised genres and modes of production that holds ongoing potential for contemporary art.

 

FRIDAY 3 FEBRUARY

Preview: Florence Trust Winter Open 2017

6:00 PM – 9:00 PM @ Florence Trust, St Saviour’s, Aberdeen Park, Highbury, London, N5 2AR
