Unit London’s summer exhibition takes inspiration from the gallery’s digital roots and brings together an innovative group of international artists.

About

Unit London is pleased to present a dynamic body of new work from eight outstanding emerging artists exploring art in the digital age. International artists include: André Hemer, Joshua Hagler, Konrad Wyrebek, Marc Gumpinger, Michael Staniak, Philip Colbert, Ry David Bradley, Tom Price. 

For this exhibition, the artists have responded to themes of identity and communication in the modern age. The curatorial process closely mirrors the themes of the exhibition, with each artist discovered and selected using the gallery’s far-reaching social media initiative, #lookingforU. Looking For U provides a fluid platform for visitors to experience an exciting body of forward-thinking work that has been informed and inspired by new digital technologies and investigative processes. 

“Unit London has always championed social media in the art world, so it seems only fitting that we continue to nurture the symbiotic relationship between creativity and online channels. As a gallery, we are passionate about celebrating exciting contemporary talent and encouraging a new audience to interact with the industry in an age when both physical space and digital environments can seem very separate.” - Joe Kennedy and Jonny Burt, Co-Founders, Unit London

Unit London remains firmly committed to its core principles that art should be celebrated, inclusive and undivided. Founded in 2013, Unit London was born from an innate desire to break down the barriers of elitism and create new innovative pathways into the contemporary art world, recognised for its pioneering approach to digital media and role in expanding and diversifying audiences using new technologies. Since its inception, Unit London has strived to provide a unique and experimental platform for the world’s most distinctive emerging talent, showcasing their work to a culturally curious audience across the globe.
