PUNK-SALON is an international open call exhibition of contemporary emerging art across all disciplines to be held at Schwartz Gallery in London. Actively seeking to disrupt the idea of the ‘salon-hang’ this group exhibition has been selected by artist-curators Ismail Erbil and Patrick Michalopoulos who continue their collaborative exploration into curatorial environments creating non-traditional hanging, display and projection structures and surfaces that visually divide the gallery space into fields of seeing and non-seeing.
Zones of movement are suggested playfully building up a complex picture of artworks and the relationships between them making the viewer aware of their role in the act of seeing and interpreting. The show will explore different interpretations of the idea of disrupted visions: blurred and in-between spaces, transgressive and displaced actions and improvised architectures that together re-locate and re-focus the act of looking and story-telling.
