Many & Beautiful Things is concerned with that time in youth when anything is possible, everything is ahead of you, and life is a rush for new experiences. Presented at both galleries, the group exhibition features photography and moving image work by internationally recognised artists, mid-career artists, and young emerging artists, many still at art school. Rineke Dijkstra’s photographs of a young Foreign Legionnaire; Binelde Hyrcan’s film of four boys on an Angolan beach who strive for the good life; Melanie Manchot filmed her daughter for one minute each month from the age of 11 to 18; Santiago Mostyn’s journals of travelling across America with a group of friends and Joseph Szabo’s photographs of high school students in the 1970s and ‘80s.

Curated by Blair Todd, the exhibition also presents Catie Close’s photographic series California Roll, Naomi Frears’ text work of teenage embarrassments, Lulu Freeman & Nadja Redman film Turning 18, Housework Press’s riso print of a tombstoneing icarus, Callum Mitchell’s coming of age library, James Loraine-Smith will sign write the fragment of Sappho’s poetry that gives the exhibition its title, Lucy Willow’s film of a sea burial, and Young People Cornwall’s portraits of their peers.

Fragment24a, an exhibition within an exhibition, is a three-strand response to Many & Beautiful Things by The Collaborators, the gallery’s collective of emerging artists aged 30 and under.
A programme of events will be announced soon.
