A major exhibition of new works by artists’ group Poster Club, developed from their participation in Cooper Gallery’s international project CURRENT in Shanghai. The experience gained along the journey of making exhibitions in China will be shared at Here Was Elsewhere forum.

About

NEW Wheat, NEW Mud, NEW Machine is a newly created installation of posters, garments and sculptures by Glasgow based artists’ collaborative group Poster Club. Poster Club are Anne-Marie Copestake, Charlie Hammond, Tom O’Sullivan, Nicolas Party, Ciara Phillips and Michael Stumpf. 

NEW Wheat, NEW Mud, NEW Machine sees the artists create a new body of work stemming from their participation in Cooper Gallery’s major international project CURRENT in Shanghai in 2015. 

Poster Club uses the medium of print as a site for experimental collaborative practice. Revisiting previous artworks and utterances is one of the key apparatus in Poster Club’s practice which they describe as a humorous 'institutional self-critique’. Through their use of elusive and humorously provocative slogans and utilisation of the ‘poster’ in its inherent multiple form, Poster Club’s works embody the plurality and complexity of contemporary cultural practice. 

The forum Here Was Elsewhere: A Memorandum of a Summer in Shanghai will share the experience gained and further expand the thoughts and discussions developed along the journey of making exhibitions in the context of China. The forum will feature artists who are involved in the CURRENT programme and specially invited speakers from both China and UK.
