ICA Bloomberg New Contempories 2011- In the Presence
ICA Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2011- In the Presence
This exhibition claimed to 'Open a window onto the future to contemporary art' and I feel it lived up to its high promises.
It was a venue I had not been to before and I thought the space really lent its self to the mixture of art types they had to view. The different levels let you flow freely between the painting, sculpture, print and video without perhaps realising they were by different artists. However the segregation between the work down stairs and upstairs was a bit fragmented.
Its seemed to be that film was the strongest part of this exhibition, perhaps pre-empting a heightened interest in New Media within Fine Art.
Although nearly finished, this exhibition might be worth trying to see. It will be interesting to see if this art within the exhibition really is second guessing art to come in 2012 and beyond.
