Curated Group Show – Reality Check

1 to 17 February 2013

A Pop Up Exhibition at 44AD Gallery Bath.

Featuring Jonny Briggs, Aneta Grzeszykowska, Minhong Pyo, Julie Cockburn, Noemie Goudal, Alison Jackson, Jo Metson Scott (with Nicola Yeoman), John Stezaker, kennardphillips and Anne Collier.

This exhibition brings together a selection of exciting and award-winning contemporary artists who distort the world on the other side of the lens within a wide variety of artistic strategies.

In the post-modern world artists often use the camera not to show the truth but rather as one of the weapons in their armory to convey their preferred message. The formerly inviolable images are now distorted and manipulated – perhaps altered, cut, layered, collaged, appropriated, painted or stitched over; the scene portrayed may be enhanced, added to or entirely faked; the images may be part of a more extensive conceptual whole, alluding to other meanings, questioning accepted ideas or referring to social, cultural or internal worlds.

Exhibition takes place at  44AD Gallery, 7 – 9 Lower Borough Walls, BATH BA1 2QR
