Celebrating its tenth year of facilitating testing of new ideas and creative modes of practice through experimental exhibitions and workshops, the Testing Ground for Art and Education has returned for another season of aiding creative and professional development opportunities to emerging artists and curators.
Exhibited in London’s Zabludowicz Collection and curated by students of MA Culture, Criticism and Curation and MA Performance Design and Practice courses at Central Saint Martins, “A Minute Ago” presents film and video works from some of the world’s most prominent artists in contemporary art, such as Oliver Beer, Pipilotti Rest, Gillian Wearing, Rachel Rose, Helen Benigson and Abi Spendlove, as well as a series of commissioned performative works that will take place throughout the duration of the exhibition.
Investigating the idea of “a moment” through artistic practice, the students raise questions such as: how do we experience a moment, and then how do we share it? How do we communicate it and how can we reconstruct it?
Combinging both performative and moving image works, all of which have been selected from the Zabludowicz’s private collection, “A Minute Ago” investigates how “a moment” is represented and received through different art practices, and how within these practices, representations of said “moment” can then be shared and experienced with others.
Here, we share a selection of video stills and installation views from inside the exhibition.
“A Minute Ago” is open until February 25th 2018 at the Zabludowicz Collection, London.
