EMERGENCY 2017 8 December – 27 February 2018 Aspex Gallery, Portsmouth
ut of over three hundred applications, eight emerging artists have been chosen to exhibit at this year’s highly anticipated EMERGENCY at Portsmouth’s Aspex Gallery. The exhibition is an international event, attracting submissions from artists across the world. The selected artists’ work will be displayed in a group show opening this December, during which a winner will be chosen to receive a solo exhibition in 2019, as well as a fee of £1,000 to support the development of new work. The artists selected for EMERGENCY are a celebration of all visual art practices, showcasing the diversity of contemporary art. They have been named as Eleanor Breeze, Matthew Gough, James Lewis, Lindsey Mendick, Flore Nové-Josserand, Beth Emily Richards, Maggie Roberts and Lotte Rose Kjær Skau. Their work and inspirations range from paintings of re-imagined memories, visually exuberant installations and visual typography shaped by a 90's childhood. Aspex is dedicated to presenting the most interesting, exciting, playful, challenging and creative contemporary art, from both new and established artists. With a commitment to supporting emerging artists, EMERGENCY is just one of the ways the gallery engages new audiences with visual art. The biennial exhibition was established in 2003 and continues to be a highlight in the art calendar.
