Island

Opening Oct 11, 2013 at 08:00 pm
Start date Oct 11, 2013
End date Dec 01, 2013

The Dairy Art Centre is pleased to present ‘Island’, an exhibition bringing together the works of over forty established and emerging international contemporary artists. It is constructed as the unfolding chapters of a novel based on Aldous Huxley’s Island of 1962, utopian story and counterpart to the Brave New World written thirty years earlier. Inspired by some of the themes of the novel, the exhibition presents a selection of works from the collection of Dairy Art Centre founders, Frank Cohen and Nicolai Frahm, whilst also including loans from the Americas, Asia and Europe, and a dozen new commissions and first-time releases. New commissions include Swiss artist Sylvie Fleury’s giant mushrooms, a clock work by John Armleder, a new wall painting by U.S. artist Ann Craven, ambiguous material by the Order of the Third Bird, traces of evanescent wall mural by Tom Benson, new works by Ursula Mayer, and Franck Leibovici & Diemo Schwarz. Stepping into the exhibition the visitor is invited to retrace the steps of Bloomsbury-born Island protagonist Will Farnaby, observer, actor and catalyst, as imagined by the organizers of the exhibition, or to simply meander among singular artistic proposals. 'Island celebrates the polyphonic and singular voices of the participating artists and their works, inviting the exhibition's visitors to join in a shared experience of the here and now.
