Curated by Jennifer Thatcher, the exhibition is a survey of the MFA class of 2007.
Goldsmiths has one of the most competitive Visual Arts programs in the world; numerous past graduates have won the illustrious Turner Prize. The artists in the show include Jeanine Woollard, winner of the Beck’s Futures 2006 Student Bursary award, Ryan O’Connor, co-founder of the artist collective Madagascar Institute, and Gudni Gunnarsson, who exhibited at the Pompidou Centre in Paris as a member of the artist collective Poni. Additional participants include: Emanuel Almborg, Richard Clements, Erin Crowe, Sarah Gilder, Robb Jamieson, Yuko Kamei, Maria-Brigita Karantzi, Sonia Morange, Christopher Paquet and Raymond Taudin-Chabot.
The show is being curated by Jennifer Thatcher, a London-based independent curator and critic, and will include works by 13 artists from the first year class working in painting, sculpture, photography, installation, and video. An essay by Jennifer Thatcher will accompany the exhibition, exploring some of the themes of the show that range from the myth of British chivalry to existentialist studies of businessmen and why rock music might be better than contemporary art.
