A new series of displays, installations and performances, which showcase the utopian visions of young UK-based artists and give voice to the issues most affecting them today, including the body, gender, sexuality and race. Curator Shonagh Marshall has brought together a group of cutting-edge, contemporary artists who each explore prevalent issues in today’s society to present their individual ideas about Utopia now. As part of UTOPIA 2016, this complex and challenging concept has resulted in a dynamic range of work, including IB Kamara’s exploration of male sexuality through fashion and Matthew Stone’s dynamic digital paintings. Each artist will bring their vision of utopia to life using a variety of media, from photography to digital paintings, fashion to film, and performances to ephemera. By presenting questions and prompting discussion and debate, the works create a journey throughout Somerset House where the visitor can consider what their own utopia might look like.
