UWTSD Fine Art lecturer exhibits at Swansea’s Mission Gallery

23.04.2015

Craig Wood, a lecturer in Fine Art at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD) will be exhibiting this weekend in the group show RIGHT NOW! at the Mission Gallery in Swansea.

Opening on the 25th April and running until the 7th June, the show is curated by Craig Wood and Paul Emmanuel and will be opened by Jonathan Watkins, Director, Ikon Gallery Birmingham,

Taking its title from the opening lines of the Sex Pistols' Anarchy in the UK, Right Now! is an exhibition which brings together again a group of Goldsmith's graduates who, in 1988, presented a show titled Current at Mission Gallery.

The invitation from Mission Gallery to revisit this event is not just a review of sorts. Right Now! looks at the trajectories of lives from one fixed point, that of an historic art exhibition.

Right Now! is a snap shot in time. It is a framework in which to examine the legacy of a definitive period in British Contemporary Art. The focus is on the lives of the people involved and the directions in which they have travelled.

The artists and curators will be ‘In Conversation’ at Mission Gallery at Saturday, May 30th at 2pm with Jonathan Watkins, Director of Ikon Gallery, Birmingham.
