Survey is a major exhibition of new work by 15 early-career artists from across the UK.
Survey presents artists who have been selected from nominations made by over 50 established artists. Nominating artists include, amongst others, Ryan Gander, Andy Holden and Rachel Maclean.
The exhibition includes work across artforms including film, performance, ceramics, installation and painting.
Developing throughout 2019 as it moves between venues, the exhibition explores themes including familial and personal identity as well as social and political frameworks. Many of the works use playful strategies, from Lindsay Mendick’s ‘I’ll Always Love You But I Don’t Always Like You’, a display of raku fired ceramics, made in collaboration with her close family, to Frank Wasser’s 02.11.20, a newspaper page detailing the assassination of Donald Trump. Other works in the exhibition show how we connect to one another creatively, such as Anna Raczynski’s The Movie Makers, a film made through dialogue with the ageing Pendle Movie Makers, a society of film makers in Colne, East Lancashire.
Originally commissioned by Jerwood Arts, the exhibition also forms a partnership with g39 (Cardiff) and Baltic (Gateshead), organisations dedicated to supporting artists and showing new work.
