As one walks through the space, one notices the flicker of neon-lit artworks, the textures of the paintings on the wall, the weight of sculptured pieces amongst the many other artistic mediums and techniques and it prompts a renewed interest in the plurality and malleability of abstraction. Furthermore, by placing works by established and emerging artists side by side, the exhibition emphasises on the enduring relevance of Abstraction in contemporary art today, offering visitors an invitation to engage in contemplation and dialouge surrounding the theme of the show.

 

 

 

This exhibition forms first of the three What’s Up iterations planned for 2018, introduces major themes that will be continued in a May edition in New York during Frieze Art Fair. To find our more about previous exhibitons in this series, please click here
