The Magma Group - Exhibition 2015 25 February - 1 March 2015 Gallery 2
Private View: Thursday 26 February 6-9pm The Magma Group of artists will be exhibiting their sixth show at the Espacio Gallery near the East End of London’s Brick Lane. Francis Lamb says,’ The Magma Group embody the contemporary mode of the pop-up..., surfing a wave of enthusiasm, camaraderie and enthusiasm that has seen them invited to show at the Griffin gallery, the Vibe Gallery and The Other Art Fair within the last couple of years.’’
The exhibition is a forum for exciting, individual and expressive British and international art. The group will exhibit paintings, drawings and video, ranging between the figurative and abstract. There will also be an evening of live artist performance and video screening.
The aims of the Magma Group are to form an alternative path for the current of conceptually expressive contemporary art. Paul Carey-Kent says, ‘ ... the explicitness of the programme behind The Magma Group ... to fuse expressive and conceptual qualities ... is particularly unusual.’
The Magma Group was founded in 2011 and is made up of artists from France, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Poland, Russia and the UK, some of whom have shown at the Venice Biennale.
