Socially, politically, and economically - we are living in trying times. These difficulties create division, and division breeds competition. Both Delphian and Guts endeavour to support all art-world practitioners wherever possible, whether they reciprocate or otherwise, and to collaborate with what would be called generally their direct competitors.
Sharing a whole range of information on art-world events through their platforms, be it exhibitions to workshops, connecting people through a strong community of art world practitioners.
They believe that the art-world would be a much more open, supportive, and progressive place to work if we started working together, rather than pulling apart. Sound like an idea our global politics could work towards.
“We noticed that the art-world can sometimes be a very closed and lonely place, on one side, artists work away in their solitary studios and on the other, galleries can often close ranks to protect their interests. We wanted to show that galleries can work together on projects that bring together incredibly exciting artists from different countries and backgrounds in an exhibition that is open and welcoming to all.”
The exhibition is being presented at The Factory in Dalston, a new creative complex that consists of studios; shops by independent artisan makers; a cafe, and exhibition space. They feel that this buzzing creative hub fits perfectly in its ethos as a location for Delphian X Guts.
The work from the thirteen selected artists spans from sculpture to painting over an extremely diverse range of styles, and all the artists are tied together in their shared outlook on collaboration.
