Just world order

About

Just world order is a curated group exhibition, originated by ArtSway, which will explore themes converging around identity and anxiety as we experience them in today's society. The indistinct unease many of us feel living in the current climate of terrorist alerts and financial turbulence will act as a backdrop to a range of newly commissioned works that will examine how we relate to the world around us, and how we perceive our own individual place in that domain. Works on show embrace theories of displacement, both physical and mental (the latter particularly evident in the deliberately ambiguous title 'Just world order') and will touch upon aspiration, elevation and belonging in human endeavour. The exhibition will feature the works of 8 UK based international artists using a variety of media: Dunhill & O'Brien (sculptural installations); Rachel Garfield (single channel video work); Charlotte Ginsborg (single channel video work); Jane Grant (sound and video installation); Ansel Krut (painting); Kim Noble (performance and installation) and Tim Simmons (photography). Exhibition Associated Events: Publication Launch: Saturday 12 July, 2008 at 3pm Please join us in the gallery for the official launch of a 28 page full-colour publication to accompany the exhibition Just world order.

Gallery Talk: Rachel Garfield in Conversation with Rebecca Ayre Saturday 9 August 2008, at 2pm News of global warming, world conflicts, immigration, and food shortages has encouraged a growth of anxiety in the modern world. In recent years there has also been an enhanced consciousness of the past from within popular culture, particularly of the lived past, or the last one hundred years. Identity, anxiety and belonging are distinct themes in Just World Order. ArtSway presents a talk with featured Just world order artist and writer Rachel Garfield to discuss how identity is expressed in contemporary art through the exploration of history and memory. Rachel will be discussing her work ‘Deep England', and her practice and research with former ArtSway intern Rebecca Ayre. Rebecca is a photographer and artist with a particular interest in memory, commemoration and nostalgia in contemporary cultures. FREE: Booking Essential.
