PROJECT 05: NICKY HIRST, PENNY KLEPUSZEWSKA AND TOM LOVELACE
Contemporary Art Society , 59 Central Street, London EC1V 3AF
PROJECTS is a series of exhibitions within the Contemporary Art Society space at 59 Central Street that transform and use the architecture of the building, drawing into focus questions around modes of display and the encounter between contemporary art and architecture.
Nicky Hirst, Penny Klepuszewska and Tom Lovelace, who all work with the photographic medium. These artists share a formal concern with space and the ways in which space can be used to effect a visual language. Addressing complexities around perception and dramatic potential, the display brings together bodies of works that suggest a number of possible narratives but deny the viewer any conclusive reading.
Curated by Contemporary Art Society Membership Programmes Manager, Sarah Page.
