Complex States: The Brexit Lexicon
Complex States: Art in the Years of Brexit is an international exhibition arriving as a timely and urgent response to both the divisive events of “Brexit” and the “Covid-19” pandemic; and featuring over 30 artists, multiple venues worldwide and a cutting edge online AR platform. As an exhibition that traverses nations, as well as the physical and virtual, Complex States hopes to offer a platform for renewed trans-national dialogue, collaboration and cultural exchange.
My Brexit Lexicon video work will be exhibited at The Art Foundation Athens (T.A.F) from 28 October to 31 December 2020.
Curated by Vassiliki Tzanakou (Director of ARTinTRA) and Catherine Harrington, “Complex States” platforms critical engagements with Brexit by artists including Jeremy Deller, Jason Decaires-Taylor, Richard Littler, Stephane Graff, Michal Iwanowski, and Rita Duffy. The exhibition brings together a wide selection of media, from paintings and sculpture to videos and installations with the aim of shedding light on the ways artists have responded to Brexit, and the urgent topics of identity, migration, globalisation, social media, and ‘fake news’ that Brexit has provoked. Selected artworks will be exhibited individually at one of a variety of venues and locations, and all artworks in the show will be brought together on an online platform (www.complexstates.art) featuring cutting-edge augmented reality experiences made possible through our collaboration with the mixed reality specialist afca.
