The Auction Collective and Presenza are thrilled to announce Abstract : Reality, an exhibition and auction of contemporary abstract and photorealist artworks, curated in collaboration with and hosted by Saatchi Gallery, London.


Abstract : Reality will look at the work of some of today’s most talented emerging abstract and realist artists, most of whom are living and practicing in the UK. The exhibition will bring together an impressive selection of works, including sculptures, paintings, photographs and works on paper, creating a fascinating dialogue between two opposite yet interlinked styles.

Questions about the meaning, origin, and necessity of abstract art have formed some of the central debates on Modern Art in the 20th and 21st centuries. The answers to such questions can seem even more remote now that contemporary painting encompasses veins of both abstraction and figuration.

Abstract : Reality will look at the various strands of this conversation and the concept of 'representation’, which acknowledges that abstract and figurative art are not as different as they might seem.
