THROUGH THE WALL presents a showcase of recent works by Royal College of Art 2009 MA Painting graduates at Club Row - Rochelle School, London. Directly following SHOW RCA 2009 ONE (29/05 07/06), this exhibition establishes a unique platform to display the variety of concerns which correlate between studio practice and presentation form.
Participating artists Robin Footitt and Samuel Fouracre have independently co-ordinated an exhibition that surrogates the approach taken by these contemporaries working in close proximity to engage with critical context. Within this group are participants from previous John Moores Painting Prize, Bloomberg New Contemporaries, Celeste Art Prize and Jerwood Contemporary Painters awards a quality mix of recognised potential and the soon to be discovered. Rather than âreading between the lines', we are offered a core meditation on group dynamics. It is from this outbound projection that we can understand how we each live by our own measures and place value on production. Simultaneously, the question of value becomes an abstract gesture in our approach with the wall.
The A Foundation and Royal College of Art collaborate for the first time to provide an ambitious site for these artists to develop the relationship between works and their defining characteristics.
