Cob Gallery is pleased to present New Work Part II: Material - a group show forming the second edition in a three-part exhibition series and following on from Form earlier in 2018.
New Work Part I, II, III: Form, Material, Subject will exhibit selected groups of international multidisciplinary artists who bring distinct voices and striking approaches to these three fields of enquiry.
The three-part series format is inspired by a programme devised at Green Gallery, New York. Between 1960 and 1965, curator Richard Bellamy chose to exhibit the work of emerging artists who were redefining what art was, taking it into new directions, and using materials and forms in innovative ways.
Material brings together works from international, emerging and established artists, who have become known for an unwavering experimentation in their application and manipulation of their chosen, more often than not, unconventional artistic materials. Presented as a meeting of painting, sculpture, installation, video, photography and mixed media works, this exhibition examines the dialogue between the organic versus the manufactured and the mechanical, as well as the unconventional use of common place or invented materials versus the traditional.
