SPACE//FORM

A group exhibition curated by Sven Davis

 

Space//Form centers around notions of the architectural landscape.  Over 100 of the most relevant young contemporary artists were each given an identical 10×10 inch panel and invited to create a work depicting their interpretation of space and form within either the constructed or the natural environment.  The exhibition will be accompanied by integral installations by Mark Dean Veca and Michael Murphy. Curator, Sven Davis, has worked in architecture for over 20 years and is the UK Director for the internationally staffed online arts magazine, Arrested Motion.

Curatorial statement:

Space//Form explores the constructed and natural environment while also serving as a comparative exercise in how different individuals respond to a single set of prescribed criteria.  All of the participating artists were given the same commission guidelines and an identical surface material to work with.  Each unique interpretation of the brief has led to the creation of a new artwork specifically for the show.  The disciplines of art and architecture traditionally enjoy a symbiotic relationship, and the parallels run deep between the conception and realization of an architectural project and the Space//Form exhibition itself.
