About

Adult Swim conjures an image of movement in a communal body of water, a metaphor for non-linear navigation of collective consciousness and the shared realms in which we work, play, and exist. The metaphor suggests a style of thinking or approach which we might employ to reveal a multitude of behaviours, ideas and moods; vignettes that rise from and float around the surface of the psyche. 

The exhibition will bring together works by 14 artists who often communicate these ‘navigations’ with a playful or humourous delivery. Though various in medium, the works are also connected by a seemingly rudimentary application of material, cartoonish in many cases, channeling transhistorical tropes of Pop Art, Abstract Expressionist posturing, surreal juxtapositions, Modernist regard for material, with a Postmodern nonchalance for mixing these references.
