Abstract

The Whitechapel Gallery’s triennial open submission show presents the most innovative art made across the capital. Discover the latest trends in contemporary art, and see paintings and sculptures, film and photography from 48 artists working in London today.

A panel of high profile art world figures, including writer and critic Ben Luke, artist Angela de la Cruz, collector Nicoletta Fiorucci, gallerist Jake Miller and Whitechapel Gallery curators Daniel Herrmann, Eisler Curator and Head of Curatorial Studies and Poppy Bowers, Assistant Curator selected the artists from a record number of 2,133 applicants.

The exhibition includes a brick sculpture built on site by father-daughter team, bricklayer Brian Watts and artist Demelza Watts; a tense video by Nelmarie Du Preez of a robotic arm, programmed by the artist to repeatedly stab a knife between her spread fingers; and the surreal altered photographs of Eva Stenram. The strong resurgence of abstract and figurative painting is shown by the vibrant murals of Lothar Gotz, the vigorous brushstrokes of Mary Ramsden, and Caroline Walker‘s intriguing views of swimming pools, while participatory art is thriving in the haunting sound performances of Sam Belifante and the MUSARC choir.
