More about the exhibitions
An Arrangement in White
This debut XO exhibition attempts to study our relationship with the colour white and the significance that such a simple distinction can retain. Within the gallery, white creates an immersive space away from mundane distractions that promotes clear vision and thought.
Works within An Arrangement in White include Ryan Gander’s This Consequence, a white Adidas tracksuit with embroidered bloodstain in red, worn by a member of XO during opening times; Graham Gussin’s Dark Corner 2002, a Trompe-l’œil made from ultra matt black paint, painted in the corner of the space; David Steans’ The Lord Cufflington, a hand painted pub sign accompanying Steans’ ghost story of the same title; Harry Meadley’s Where the Magic Happens, a steel model of an architectural anomaly observed in the artists’ bedroom and painted in the host gallery’s white wall paint; and Kitty Clark’s Lucky, a new work made from MDF & resin based on a miniature bowl of milk tipping on a shelf.
Full list of artists: Jeffrey Baij / Garry Barker / Simon Boase / John Bohl / Cath Campbell / Toby Christian / Kitty Clark / Jay Cover / Caroline Dawson / Pete Ellis / Andreas Ervik / Alex Farrar / Jack Fisher / Ryan Gander / Graham Gussin / Verity Hatfield / James Hines / Penny Klepuszewska / Damien Knightley / Rory Macbeth / Harry Meadley / Andreas Meinich / Briony Mullan / Richard Paul / Tom Railton / Alexis Rago / Simon Ringe / Tai Shani / David Steans / Rachel Westerman /
