An exhibition of artworks to commemorate the launch of the second issue of the isthisit? magazine.

About

For Untitled's fourtheenth event, artist and curator Bob Bicknell-Knight, on invitation from Jonny Tanna, shall present a variety of artworks to commemorate the second issue of the isthisit? magazine, enabling conversations within the Untitled collective about the end of a generation and the beginning of the post-truth, post-internet experience that we currently find ourselves residing in.

Featured artists:

Bora Akinciturk, Bob Bicknell-Knight, Juan Covelli, Anne de Boer, Pippa Eason, Roxman Gatt, Gordon Holden, Joey Holder, Will Kendrick, Jake Kent, Eden Mitsenmacher, Aaron Scheer, Willem Weismann, Trystan Williams, Lewk Wilmshurst, Xim Xom, Jiyoung Yoo, Yorkson

The second issue of the isthisit? magazine is 104 pages and composed of artworks, essays, interviews and one podcast, considering memes and appropriation on the internet. In the United States 2016 presidential election, memes are said to have played a fundamental role, with individuals on 4chan claiming that they were responsible for Donald Trump's rise to power due to the amount of memes that were created and shared on a daily basis. This issue of the magazine hopes to consider the power of the meme, it's rise in contemporary culture and the widespread appropriation of images and videos being utilised, both in memes and artworks.
