Curated by Zavier Ellis
Zavier Ellis identifies London’s best new talent to curate Young Gods at Griffin Gallery and CHARLIE SMITH LONDON for the third year running.
Ellis’ annual selection of graduates from London art schools is recognized as a key barometer of the best new London artists.
The exhibition has a proven track record of discovering vital new artists and introducing them to the international market. Previous selections have gone on to considerable success with galleries, museums and collectors, including three artists from the 2013 selection being placed in the world renowned Saatchi Gallery collection.
This year sees a combination of painting, sculpture, installation and video by seven artists from China, Italy, Netherlands, Norway & United Kingdom, illustrating the international nature of today’s London art schools intake.
Showing simultaneously at west London’s Griffin Gallery and east London’s CHARLIE SMITH LONDON, the exhibition will feature the same artists at both sites, enabling a different curatorial perspective at each gallery. Combined the exhibition will feature work that is complex, sensational, confrontational and absurd.
Exhibiting Artists: Gabriele Dini, Russell Hill, Tezz Kamoen, Hilde Krohn Huse, Joshua Raffell, Newton Whitelaw, Tian ZhuShare
