Angolan artist collective's first UK exhibition, including open studio sessions & artist blog: http://africanindustrialrevolution.com/


Tiwani Contemporary is pleased to announce its summer project: African Industrial Revolution (A.I.R) by e-studio Luanda. e-studio Luanda is an artist collective and studio complex founded in 2012 in the Angolan capital by Francisco Vidal, Rita GT, António Ole and Nelo Teixeira.

A.I.R. will be the collective's first exhibition in the UK, taking the form of an open studio within Tiwani Contemporary's space. Transforming the gallery space into a temporary artist studio, the first week of the project will be punctuated by daily sessions during which collective members Rita GT and Francisco Vidal will produce work in-situ. The overall aim of the project is to release a work of art directly into a system that depends on digital and analogue ideas around free reproduction and distribution, investigating how information is disseminated today.

A.I.R. forms part of e-studio Luanda's ongoing exploration of the condition of the post-modern, peripatetic and itinerant artist. The project envisions a system of art making and exhibiting that is no longer tied in with a sense of place, and highlights the status of the artist as an international worker.

Follow their blog http://africanindustrialrevolution.com/ for daily updates on their work-in-progress.

This project is made possible thanks to the generous support of the A.G. Leventis Foundation.
