Ruth Angel Edwards: Wheel of the Year
Thursday 11 January, 5 pm - 7 pm
Our first exhibition of 2018 is a solo presentation of new work, and associated events, by London-based and Nottingham-originated artist Ruth Angel Edwards, a multimedia artist whose work explores the communication of ideology through popular culture.
- From: Friday 12 January 2018, 10 am
- To: Friday 16 February 2018, 5 pm
- Location: Bonington Gallery, Bonington building, Dryden Street, Nottingham, NG1 4GG
Drawing from mainstream and subcultural youth movements from the past and present, Edwards looks at the way audio and visual content is used to manipulate an audience and disseminate information.
Working between video, audio, sculpture, performance and print, Edwards explores subcultures, tracing their paths and examining the wider socio-economic environments that give rise to them, exposing their failures and flaws and uncovering lost spiritualities and hidden positive potential.
Edwards studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins. Recent exhibitions and projects include an exhibition of new work at Almanac, Turin, 2017; Light Deception / The Great Imitator, Auto Italia South East, London, 2017; a solo exhibition at Arcadia Missa, London, 2016; Info Pura, The Residence Gallery, London 2016, Derivatives and Futures, Human Resources, Los Angeles, 2016; A British Art Show, MEYOHAS Gallery, New York, 2015.
Join us on Thursday 11 January from 5 pm to 7 pm for the special Preview, before the show opens to the public on Friday 12 January.
