Curated by Rowan Geddis, Young London 2018 continues V22’s plan for regular large-scale exhibitions of some of London’s most talented and exciting emerging artists. Young London 2018 will present both new and recent works, many being commissioned and/or site-specific. Reflecting shifts in art practice and emerging artists’ changing needs, Young London 2018 embodies a rethinking of the format, predominantly through an expanded programme that acknowledges the increasingly disparate ways in which art practice may develop, find form, and shift between fields.
This year, V22 is providing further opportunities for artists to engage with a broader audience through the Young London Extended Programme. This will consist of a variety of activities, across multiple sites: installations, open rehearsals, talks, lectures, workshops, discursive events, performances, concerts and public sculpture.
A multi-disciplinary show, Young London 2018 includes performance, video, film, sculpture, installation and painting and takes place in V22’s new artist neighbourhood: V22 Silvertown Studios. The exhibition will also include Young London Friday Lates, a series of weekly events taking place after-hours, providing artists with a more intimate environment in which to present further aspects of their work and for visitors and artists to exchange ideas.
Young London artists were selected from nominations received through V22’s existing network, including artists from the collection, industry professionals, academics, young curators, and the Young London alumni. We would like to thank curators David Thorp and Rowan Geddis, and artist Fergal Stapleton for assisting V22 in the final selection of artists.
The preview for Young London 2018 is on Friday 21 September 2018 6 – 9pm.
