Lubomirov / Angus-Hughes, London
13th – 22nd May 2016
Curated by Anna Bleeker and Alessandra Falbo
“SIXTY is a curated two-part project in London and Athens predicated on notions of arbitrary political constraints. Sixty works of art were selected by different decision-making bodies or individuals, including a public vote, and subject to a variety of processes and criteria – physical, financial and political – testing the ability of artist and curator to navigate within structures offering both real and illusory choices and opportunities.
Artists were invited to submit artworks in any medium by posting through the gallery’s 6cm by 24.5cm letterbox. All artworks received in this way were displayed in the gallery from 13 to 22 May alongside pieces from our collection of editions and small works. The gallery’s directors selected 60 works from our collection and a further 60 works submitted via the open call were selected by a public vote at the private view. From each of the two bodies of 60 works, 30 were chosen by the project curators and together these final 60 works travelled to Platform Projects @ Art Athina, where they will be on show for 4 days.”
