This years’ show is an exhibition intended to showcase talented emerging artists who are engaged on some level with a self-consciousness of the challenges and potential opportunities of exploring renewed paradigms for the visual arts.
Though it is not claimed that there is overt or indelible evidence of this ambivalence in the work of each and every artist, the works chosen this year seem to suggest some of these environmental and ideological changing conditions.

Adam Burton’s new work simply proposes the production of a news article documenting the recent UN resolution on the 5th of August this year declaring the access to clean water and sanitation a human right. Burton s Article explores the UK’s delegates’ decision to abstain on this vote. The article will be printed and distributed within the greater London Area by hand.
