AboutMaria Stenfors is proud to present Endogenous; a two week exhibition of works on paper by five young artists, a musical performance, and a talk on economic bubbles in relation to the contemporary art world by Professor Jan Toporowski.
In an age of austerity, where is the driving force for art and artists? Is the economic structure spurred on by external benefactors, or is art created and encouraged by a more internal structure? This series of exciting events from the platform of the gallery, brief in time and set in a domestic environment, plans to achieve a space where voices and inspirations that revolve around the gallery's ethos have the opportunity to come together.
Endogenous Growth Theory is a concept within economics used to highlight that economic growth can be developed and nurtured from within, rather than externally. Key to the concept is the belief that investment in the population and human capital is key to economic growth. Opening up the gallery agora to fantastic artists and their captivating new works, a dynamic musical performance of urban life, and contemporary economic theory, the events promise to be an exuberant start to the Autumn.
Key to Endogenous is a works on paper exhibition by Francesca Anfossi, Eduardo Basualdo, David Cochrane, Lilah Fowler and Alan Magee. Each artist has been in an extended dialogue with the gallery, and this show takes advantage of the opportunity to present artworks by artists whose integrity the gallery has faith in.
