kurimanzutto is pleased to announce the opening of Signals: If You Like I Shall Grow, a major exhibition focusing on the renowned art gallery and meeting place Signals London (1964-66), which will be presented at Thomas Dane Gallery in London from June 08 - July 21, 2018.

About

Signals: If You Like I Shall Grow is the first exhibition to reunite the works of Signals London’s three founding artists, David Medalla, Gustav Metzger, and Marcello Salvadori, while also tracing the global impact resulting from the confluence of interests generated at that specific point in art history. As a cross-disciplinary space open to critical research and social encounter, Signals London has long been a source of inspiration for kurimanzutto. Celebrated internationally for its ground-breaking series of solo exhibitions, by artists including Lygia Clark, Jesus Rafael Soto, and Mira Schendel, Signals London also used group exhibitions as a device for creating aesthetic relationships between the diverse national and international avant-garde networks orbiting its founders. As such, Signals: If You Like I Shall Grow will act as part of a process of research, guided by the possibility of tracing these wider networks. By doing so it will define a connection between past and present gallery models.

Borrowing from Signals London’s collaborative ethos, kurimanzutto’s Signals: If You Like I Shall Grow will be hosted by Thomas Dane Gallery in London, with whom it shares a long working relationship. Bringing together historic works from public and private collections and including rarely seen works, it utilizes Thomas Dane Gallery as its venue, mapping connections and synergies across both its gallery spaces. Featuring artists who worked across Latin America, the USA, and Western Europe, it also sheds new light on the diverse body of British artists who formed part of Signals London’s network. Both galleries will extend their partnership in 2019, when kurimanzutto hosts Thomas Dane Gallery in their Mexico City space.
