HOT-ONE-HUNDRED is a show of 100 emerging contemporary artists based in the U.K. One artist will be offered a solo show at Schwartz Gallery in 2014 at the end of the exhibition. Following an Open Call format the 100 artists and the subsequent solo-show artist will be selected by Ismail Erbil and Patrick Michalopoulos, artist-curators of Schwartz Gallery, one of the largest and longest-running of the current crop of artist-run spaces in London. A reference to ranking systems seen in late-night popular music T.V programmes and art world power lists the exhibition creates a âHOT-ONE-HUNDRED moment' in the emerging U.K contemporary art scene offering up a very real opportunity for a solo show in the gallery. Playfully mimicking the creation of power lists in the worlds of art, entertainment and business HOT-ONE-HUNDRED satirises this âheat' phenomenon while simultaneously becoming an agent for its proliferation.
