The events of Brexit have stirred, disturbed, and tantalised not only British society, but also its European and international counterparts. They have also contributed significantly to the urgency within discussions of citizenship, identity, nationalism, migration, and globalization. Questions remain however, on whether art and culture should or can play a role in these debates.
Complex States: Art in the Years of Brexit, is a visual arts exhibition curated by Catherine Harrington and Vassiliki Tzanakou that will feature artists’ and cultural practitioners’ critical engagements with the events that followed before, during and after the referendum from both a national and international perspective; offering more holistic, and at times, playful narratives and practices. The exhibition will also aim to further explore, represent, and discuss the complex states of artists, cultural practitioners and institutions as they worked through the events of the referendum’s outcome, whilst attempting to create an historical archive of these reflections. Works on display are of a variety of media including video, painting, sculpture, campaign documentation and posters as well as site specific installations.
