FOREIGN BODY (ies) is an annual exhibition in New York produced by Cottelston Advisors of work by emerging artists who studied in the MFA Programme at Goldsmiths University of London. Goldsmiths is one of the most competitive Art Practice Programmes in the world, its alumni are critically center stage and have set the pace internationally. The show will be held from August 29 th through September 22 nd at White Box, 525 West 26th Street.
“Given the reputation of Goldsmiths, it seemed natural to introduce the fresh views of these talented artists to the New York art world.” Michael Sellinger, Cottelston Advisors.
FOREIGN BODY asserts the idea that ‘originality’ is a foreign body that questions our assumptions of art and its cultural significance.
The exhibition will include installations by artists working in painting, sculpture, photography and video. For many of the artists, this will be the first time their work will be exposed in New York, making this a must-see show for the art world. The exhibition is being curated by Gerard Hemsworth.
Artists: Eric Ayotte, Diann Bauer, Amanda Beech, G. L. Brierley, Justin Brown, Pil and Galia Kollectiv, Lindsay Seers, Shaan Syed and Systems House.
