Exhibition runs from 29 May – 25 June 2011
Tuesday – Saturday 11am-5pm
The Torrance Art Museum is proud to announce a monumental exhibition of new British art for Los Angeles BritWeek 2011, organised in association with The Future Can Wait and Edward Lucie-Smith.
Based on the idea that small, today, is often much better than big, this exhibition will be a groundbreaking show of almost 100 British or British based artists. All working on paper and none bigger than A3 in size, it invites viewers to engage with art intimately, and at the same time offers the American public a sweeping overview of the exciting new artistic developments now taking place in Britain.
It will almost certainly be the largest display, in terms both of the number of artists, and also in terms of stylistic variety, of new British and British-based art ever seen in California. This exhibition reflects the do it yourself attitude of the curators, standing against bureaucracy and top down institutionalism, and demonstrates how young artists and committed curators can mount major events in straightened times.
