Event description

Description

Signals

From 27 April to 13 July 2018, S│2 London will present an exhibition dedicated to the spirit of Signals London. In August 1964, David Medalla, Guy Brett, Paul Keeler, Gustav Metzger and Marcello Salvadori began to publish Signals Newsbulletin as part of the Centre for Advanced Creative Study, which they had set up in Medalla and Keeler’s apartment in Cornwall Gardens, South Kensington. The news bulletin declared the group’s aim to be ‘dedicated to the adventures of the modern spirit’ and presented a wide range of international art, alongside and often fused with poetry and progressive articles on architecture, agriculture, technology and science, among other topics. Alongside the newsbulletin, the group held early exhibitions at the Cornwall Gardens address, but Signals truly came into being with the opening of a gallery in a four-storey space on Wigmore Street in central London where they were able to present multiple exhibitions on a larger scale.

The constantly evolving and dynamic nature of their exhibition programme created a fertile ground for experimentation and the coalescing of a genuine internationalism of various social and cultural approaches together and it is from this position that this exhibition at S│2 London seeks to continue the conversation and ethos of Signals.
