The global economy while rarely stable has undergone a recent seismic shift. All Insignificant Things Must Disappear is an attempt to uncover new ways of thinking about what has become an encompassing event. Thirteen dynamic international artists present their work within this context. Jo Wilmot’s lush, degrading environments melt off the canvas to expose the artifice beneath; Ryan Roa examines the functionality of consumer products, raising them to new levels of desirability, while Sandra Eula Lee’s innovative footwear intrigues by suggesting how we can keep track of any future steps we may take. Elsewhere in this exhibition Jo Yarrington asks us to put our hands together as she engages with the architecture of Trinity Museum through light and image, Slavs and Tatars take a reflective approach and Joseph Farbrook invites you inside his head.

This almost unprecedented crisis has opened up a range of social and cultural consequences that we are still struggling to comprehend. Artists, so often acting as barometers for society’s evolution have a role to play in navigating this latest challenge. By offering alternative ways of seeing the volatility of recent times, All Insignificant Things Must Disappear aims to foster discussion and consideration for the road ahead.

A catalog to accompany the exhibition is available. A related panel discussion, The Nature of Creativity, will take place in December at Trinity Church with participants from the fields of art, finance and theology; details to follow.
