ANNEX EAST are delighted to present One One One, the first collaborative group exhibition from a selection of young, London-based contemporary art galleries:
Millington | Marriott
Hannah Barry Gallery
One One One offers a unique insight into the capital’s contemporary art scene by showing a cross-section of galleries from North, South, East and West London. This inimitable development has allowed a diverse variety of works to be displayed, with each of the galleries choosing an artist in response to the space. The novel selection process is a celebration of the individuality of each gallery and their respective artists.
The title of the exhibition is a reflection of the curatorial process; one gallery showing one piece of work from one artist. The title’s simplicity echoes the minimal, stripped-back design and approach favoured throughout the space at ANNEX EAST and simulates the elemental curatorial method.
ANNEX EAST is located on the doorstep of the Olympic Games, Stratford, London. The Olympic Games comprises nations from all corners of the globe collectively gathering under one roof to celebrate and test the capabilities of the human body. In this sense, One One One can be seen as a site upon which to test the values of the inclusive, universal spirit associated with an event like the London Summer Games.
The collaboration between Millington | Marriott, ANDOR, Limoncello Gallery, COLE and Hannah Barry Gallery embodies the emergence of a diverse and exciting art scene in London. In a time where financial cuts are rife, especially in the arts, collaboration between artists, galleries, curators, critics and institutions become wholly important to the continuation and development of the arts. ANNEX EAST hopes to provide an opportunity for positive, collective advancement.
