All I Want Is Out Of Here - October Gallery

Exhibition preview

ALL I WANT Is Out Of Here, a dynamic group exhibition of recent works by sixteen MA photography students from the Royal College of Art, will be on display at October Gallery from September 6 to September 15, 2012.

Exhibits include film, photography and installation.

This exhibition offers a preview of next year’s RCA Fine Art graduates and unveils an array of concerns underlying their work including reassessing public and private histories, the body and humour, the archive, temporal complexities of urban living and its discordant relationship with the land.

Such themes allow for experimentation, while questioning what it means to observe, catch or construct meaning in the 21 Century.

The show’s title is a quote by the visual and literary artist William S. Burroughs, whose subversive and experimental approach has influenced the artists in this show.

This generation of emerging artists has grown up with a daily context of worldwide economic and ecological uncertainty; the work in this show reflects their constant negotiation of this context through the rapidly-changing field of photography and film.

The assembled polyphony of voices suggests a collage of ideas that aims to open up new junctures, affording a glimpse into approaches to contemporary photographic practice.

Admission: Free.

Times: Tuesday to Saturday 12.30pm to 5.30pm or by appointment. The Gallery is closed during official holidays and for the entire month of August.
