24 August - 28 September 2008
Alongside its consideration of what might constitute current Concrete Art activity, this exhibition declares a concrete sense of ‘now’ (2008).
Grounded in an awareness of the history of the Concrete Art movement and its various off-shoots; Concrete Poetry, Concrete Music and the more heterogeneous groupings it influenced, such as Nouveaux Realistes, Arte Povera, MAC, Fluxus, Minimalists etcetara, each work in the show is open to concrete interpretation.
As a group, the pieces combine in various ways to suggest further understandings. These allow reflections on the nature of the space, the gallery’s location and its wider context. Investigating the processes that cause these connections and, ultimately, why the show is the way it is, in the place it is, becomes the work of the exhibition.
