Purple Nurples & Peekaboos
Monday – Friday 11am – 6pm, Saturday 12 – 4pm
Turning the art world topsy turvy, Purple Nurples & Peekaboos inverts contemporary artistic strivings and goes in pursuit of absurdity. Opening at the Arts Gallery on 17 March, Purple Nurples & Peekaboos presents five international artists who take a wry look at futility and laugh with equal measure at sense and nonsense.
Curator Medeia Cohan-Petrolino comments: “Irony is a familiar strategy in contemporary fine art practice but the humour in Purple Nurples & Peekaboos tickles in a different way. This exhibition brings together a group of artists whose visual and material language articulates the absurd. Themes of bathos, futility and farce run throughout the work presented.”
The exhibiting artists are University of the Arts London alumni Ronnie Yarisal and Katja Kublitz, Maurice Citron, Simon Linington and Janina Anja Lange, graduates of Chelsea, Central Saint Martins and Wimbledon Colleges.
