YOUNG GODS CURATED BY ZAVIER ELLIS IN COLLABORATION WITH CHARLIE SMITH LONDON
The 2013 edition of annual exhibition Young Gods will take place simultaneously across two locations in west and east London. Selected and curated by Zavier Ellis, director of Shoreditch gallery CHARLIE SMITH london and co-founder of THE FUTURE CAN WAIT, the exhibition will be a multi-disciplinary presentation of London’s most exciting graduates from the summer of 2013. Young Gods is presented in conjunction with the Griffin Gallery, supported by fine art brands Winsor & Newton, Conté à Paris and Liquitex.
The exhibition promises to be a relevant focus on London’s most exciting future talent as Ellis continues to identify the capital’s best artists directly from Art College. Previous selections have included Steven Allan, David Blandy, Leah Capaldi, Oliver Clegg, Tessa Farmer, Sam Jackson, Annie Kevans, Alexis Milne, Nika Neelova and Douglas White.
This year’s edition will combine painting, sculpture, video, performance, photography, collage and installation by artists from six different countries, emphasising the international and cross-disciplinary nature of London’s best Art Colleges. Each artist will exhibit at both venues and with several already going into major collections, Young Gods will also provide great opportunities for new and experienced collectors.
