SANS

OPENING 05 SEPTEMBER 2019

OPEN 24 HRS is proud to present a new exhibition, Sans.

The evolution of art has come a long way. Traditionalists who scorned rebels. Rebels who became popular, who frowned upon pop, who drove contemporaries to accept all forms “sans” hierarchy and prejudice (one hopes).

OPEN 24 HRS has a purist’s ideal of bringing the viewer in and allowing them to determine effect. Here, we bring a body of work that unpicks the traditional theme and embraces alternative medium and cast.

Established artists exhibited alongside new and young artists, with equal voice. We embrace these differences and encourage the viewer to experience 'sans' any preconceived literate justification.

In partnership with Distell, Blend Property, Turn Capital, and Art Gazette.
