Scream | London
The team behind Scream are opening a new gallery on Eastcastle Street. With their Mayfair venue proving a popular venue with the high art crowds and super glam, the Eastcastle street version will surely maintain its rock n roll reputation, starting with a show by Chinese artist, Ye Hongxing. Recently selected as one of China’s top 20 rising artists by the curator of the Asian Art Museum in California and the director of Art Cologne, she says that her work is “a reaction to the swift change of China’s social system.” The title of the exhibition references the 1905 novel A Modern Utopia by H.G Wells and is suggestive of the artist’s investigation into society and modern life. Hongxing creates jewel-like mosaics of a hybrid reality using a collage of stickers on canvas, and imagery inspired by mainstream media.
A Modern Utopia runs 13th September – 20th October 2012.
