DESCRIPTION

Beginning its collaboration with Goldsmiths, University of London, The David Roberts Art Foundation is delighted to announce The Moon is an Arrant Thief, the first exhibition of The Goldsmiths' Project. Through a process of open call, the Foundation offers to one curator (or curatorial group) from the MFA Curating every year the opportunity to develop and present a project for and with the Foundation.

This year’s winning exhibition is The Moon is an Arrant Thief, by Thom O’Nions, Luiza Teixeira de Freitas and Oliver Martínez-Kandt. The show brings together a selection of contemporary and more historical artists whose works exist on the cusp of visibility, in the space between object and idea. It is an exhibition that elaborates a story; that looks at the relationship between contemporary artistic practice and the legacy of dematerialised art. Rather than engaging directly with the dominant historical practices of conceptualism, the exhibition seeks to find a space of reflection on the peripheries of the debate, to engage with practices that remain provocative in their engagements with ideas of immateriality, space and formal resonance.

With works by Saâdane Afif, William Anastasi, Robert Barry, Rosa Barba, Ricardo Cuevas, Edith Dekyndt, Tim Etchells, Matias Faldbakken, Robert Kinmont, Kitty Kraus, Germaine Kruip, Roman Ondák, Fernando Ortega, Bradley Pitts, and Joëlle Tuerlinckx.
