YOUNG GODS, selected and curated by Zavier Ellis, takes place simultaneously at CHARLIE SMITH london and the Griffin Gallery again in 2014.
The 2014 edition of annual exhibition Young Gods will take place simultaneously across two locations in west and east London for the second year running. Selected and curated by Zavier Ellis, Director of Shoreditch gallery CHARLIE SMITH london and co-founder of THE FUTURE CAN WAIT, the exhibition will be a multi-disciplinary presentation of London’s most exciting graduates from the summer of 2013, with three of the ten already being placed in the Saatchi Gallery collection. Young Gods is presented in association with the Griffin Gallery, supported by fine art brands Winsor & Newton, Conté à Paris and Liquitex.
The exhibition promises to be a relevant focus on London’s most exciting future talent as Ellis continues to identify the capital’s best artists directly from Art College. Previous selections have included Steven Allan, David Blandy, Leah Capaldi, Oliver Clegg, Tessa Farmer, Sam Jackson, Annie Kevans, Alexis Milne, Nika Neelova and Douglas White.
This year’s edition will combine painting, sculpture, video, performance, photography, collage and installation by artists from six different countries, emphasising the international and cross-disciplinary nature of London’s best Art Colleges. Each artist will exhibit at both venues and with several already going into major collections such as the Saatchi Gallery, Young Gods will also provide great opportunities to new and experienced collectors.
