Group exhibition in Hackney. A range of emergent artists and curators specifically responding to the space
AboutLet's Yarding is the first edition of a series of exhibitions by GAPS Curatotial. Based on an invitation to various artists and curators to take part, the exhibition places itself as an interstitial space where the notions of public and private are blurred and taken into consideration.
This exhibition not only constitutes a curatorial experiment for GAPS, but also brings the opportunity to celebrate a constructed friendship with a group of emerging creatives from different fields. In its first edition, Let’s Yarding brings together artists, curators, and a gallery to bundle energies in a search for new cultural perspectives.
This is a participatory event that aims to address some specific conditions of the contemporary art world. The space in between every young artist and the established art world has made us reflect on our position in here. This initiative tries to embrace this void, the distance from one to the other. All the art pieces have been specifically commissioned for the event and respond to the uniqueness of the space. Hence, the possibility of rain, the hostility of this outdoor site, and the uncertainty about the final outomce, are all together inherent elements of this exhibition that, instead of overcoming, enlightens the adversities.
