The international group exhibition, curated by Simon Faithfull, presents dystopian terrains and possible landscapes to come.

Taking its title from Max Ernst’s 1942 surrealist painting Europe After The Rain, the exhibition explores a future environment where things have evolved, or devolved, into a strange new state. Though out of this catastrophe, there may be optimism. While some of the works consider normal things from our everyday world (such as caravans or ski-slopes) when framed within the wider context of the exhibition these works become artefacts within a collective dream – a dream of an imagined landscape to come.

Presenting painting, sculpture and film installation, exhibiting artists will include, among others, Larry Achiampong, Peggy Atherton, Karin Bos, Crowe & Rawlinson, Nick Laessing, Onya McCausland, Melanie Manchot, Rebecca Partridge and Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay. 

Europe After The Rain runs parallel to Fathom, a solo show of film and photography by Simon Faithfull at The Exchange, exploring where land meets sea and man’s place in it.
