Here Today is an exhibition curated by Twinkle Troughton and Tinsel Edwards, featuring the work of 11 contemporary female artists at The Outside World Gallery on Redchurch St.

The exhibition title ‘Here Today’ is taken from one of the pieces in the show, a neon artwork by Kathy Barber (pictured). Here Today’s artists are taking glimpses, ideas, fantasies and facts from history and bringing them into the now.

Working with a wide range of media including painting, sculpture, found objects, drawing and multi media the artists selected for this show each has a very individual practice.

The main common ground between the works is that of nostalgia, history and time gone by. Some works are political, some humorous, some emotive, surreal or aesthetically beautiful yet it is from a contemporary viewpoint, each artist considers how the past has informed our present.
