Zayn Qahtani | Julia Bennett | Lee Cameron | Shaoyu Chen | Gherdai Hassell | Selby H.I | Salome Wu | Tracey Slater
2 - 11 December 2021
Featuring: Julia Bennett, Lee Cameron, Shaoyu Chen, Selby H.I, Zayn Qahtani, Gherdai Hassell, Tracey Slater and Salomé Wu.
She Curates, Clovermill Artist Residency and Wilder Gallery are delighted to present an eight-artist exhibition, featuring selected artists from their collaborative international Open Call.
The dynamic showcase is grounded in the collective’s commitment to openness, accessibility, engagement and a true championing of artists. The collaborative project sought to invite a diverse range of artists from around the world to present a selection of works at Wilder Gallery. Two exhibiting artists will be further offered the opportunity to take up residence at Clovermill in 2022.
A broad variety of themes run throughout the curation, from Slater and Hassell’s bold exploration and centring of the female body, the humour of Cameron’s works, and the otherworldliness, mythic and distortion of Qahtani, Chen and Wu’s practice.
From over 200 applications, this Open Call exhibition demonstrates a snapshot of the exciting talent contemporary working today, crossing mediums, themes and continents. The selection celebrates the range and depth of the collaboration’s collective interests.
