One and Other explores the duality that emerges from the daily performing of a persona other than ourselves. The show constitutes a spatial experiment in which the concept of the stage is used as a metaphor to investigate this duality. A parallel is drawn between the dynamic of an actor and their performed role onstage and our relationship to our projected personas on social media platforms. From this starting point the exhibition questions, through a range of contemporary artworks of different mediums, the permanence of our identity, what influences it, the multiple shapes it takes and our relationship towards the other self.
One and Other is curated by students of the MA Curating courses at Chelsea College of Art
and Sir John Cass College of Art at London Metropolitan University. Produced collaboratively over a period of three months, the resulting exhibition has been selected from over 3000 Collection works and brings together some of the most significant artists in contemporary art, including Cécile B. Evans, recipient of the Push Your Art prize in 2013, and Isa Genzken, who just closed a solo show at the recently inaugurated Hauser Wirth & Schimmel in Los Angeles. This will also be the first time work by Turkish artist Ferhat Özgür has been shown from the collection.
Combining a cross section of curatorial perspectives from throughout Europe the participating curators are: Caterina Avataneo, Ryan Blakeley, Nadine Cordial Settele, Sofía Corrales Akerman, Gaia Giacomelli and Angela Pippo. The exhibition will be accompanied by a public programme of events, curator-led tours and family workshops.
