Event description

Description

THIS EVENT IS FOR LIVERPOOL HOPE UNIVERSITY STAFF AND STUDENTS ONLY. PLEASE BRING YOUR HOPE ID CARD TO THE EVENT.

In paraphrasing and inverting John Cage's Zenlike ruminations concerning Rauschenberg's early monochromes, the Destroyed by Shadows exhibition, curated by artist John Bunker, brings together contemporary painters who deliberately discombobulate abstract idioms in painting. In doing so they bring fresh inherently visual approaches to the received wisdoms and theory about the destroyed narratives of Modernism, abstraction and Post-Modernism.

Following on the exhibition’s Private View at 6pm in The Cornerstone Gallery, this symposium will provide the opportunity for a panel of artists, including John Bunker, to delve into a discussion centred on current issues in contemporary art, particularly exploring contemporary art’s place in its own history.

The exhibition Destroyed by Shadows will run in The Cornerstone Gallery from Wednesday 28th February until Thursday 12th April 2018 and will feature work by Dominic Beattie, John Bunker, Neil Gall, Andrea Medjesi-Jones, Peter Lamb, Harland Miller, Selma Parlour, DJ Simpson, Michael Stubbs, Shaan Syed, Clare Woods and Vicky Wright.
