free 'Selective Memories' at the Griffin Gallery

From 19/03/2015 at 09:00 to 17/04/2015 at 18:00

The Griffin Gallery brings a new generation of French contemporary artists to London with a group exhibition called Selective Memories. This exciting new exhibition investigates the role of art materials within the world of contemporary art.

Selective Memories brings together a collection of talented students and graduates from the distinguished École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris (ENSBA). This exciting new exhibition at West London’s Griffin Gallery investigates the role of art materials within contemporary art practice.

The opportunity to introduce and explore tools and technologies from the latest research in the field of fine art materials forms part of the Griffin Gallery’s commitment to developing the careers of the next generation of contemporary artists. The students were introduced to innovative products from water-mixable oils and printing inks, to solvent-free acrylic spray paints, mixable with more traditional acrylic paint. These developing technologies expand the potential of each artist to approach their work with greater freedom and enhance their practice.

Curated by Griffin Gallery Director, Becca Pelly-Fry, the exhibition is centred on the artists’ shared interest in breaking apart traditional modes of creating artworks. Though their approach is a dynamic mix of abstract, figurative and graphic work, the exhibiting artists are united in their respect for the importance of a foundation in art history. Taking their lead from those artists who pushed the boundaries of their time, each of the artists from ESNBA has developed a clear, independent voice and line of thinking within their practice.

Rebecca Pelly-Fry, Director of Griffin Gallery and Global Manager of The Fine Art Collective comments: ‘This is an exhibition shimmering with energy and potential, it shows the future of contemporary art in Europe with each artist taking selective inspiration from the past to create a new visual language for today.’

Griffin Gallery (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube) is a new gallery in West London supporting cutting-edge talent, hosting discussions and celebrating the best in contemporary art in London and around the world through a new award, the Griffin Art Prize.
