Millennialism is a group exhibition that asks what the experience of becoming an artist is in ‘the era of the millennial’.

About

The show examines the varying social, political, cultural and financial factors that continue to change the landscape of art today, and how a generation has responded to, shaped and unravelled the ways both art, and ourselves, can be understood.

Millennialism asks us to look beyond the avocados and the selfies. Despite media parody and negativity towards the first generation to grow-up online, Millennials have been responsible for so many shifts in our collective consciousness. They invented wokeness, began social action online, softened mental health, and shaped the internet, challenging concrete classifications and hierarchies as they have done so.

Millennials are making more than just memes. They collapse the personal and the political, question the way we communicate, and re-assess the voices that get to be heard. With the exhibition and its public programme, we ask, what is the relevance of millennial art, and could it be our next great ‘ism’?
