Exhibitions

Reality Undone, 23.4.07 - 23.6.07. Gallery, University of Essex, Wivenhoe Park , CO4 3SQ Colchester (England), United Kingdom.

Reality Undone is a challenging contemporary art exhibiton aiming to challenge our perception of reality. It continues to explore the representation of mystery and the trick within contemporary art, following from Michel Foucault's "This is not a pipe".

The exhibition displays newly made links to Magritte's surrealism, combined with the contemporary-modern legacy of Dan Flavin's minimalism, placing the play of map/territory relation within art firmly within a contemporary context.

Notable due to the participation of "key figure on the British contemporary art scene" Richard Wentworth and influential US photographer Duane Michals. Participating artists also include neon-sculptor Ivan Navarro, photographer Chema Madoz, conceptual surrealist Jorge Macchi, and the duo of photographers Frode Fjerdingstad and Marcus Palmqvist.

The exhibition is linked with the University of Essex's prestigious UECLAA (University of Essex Collection of Latin American Art), and Surrealist Centre[3] due to the presence of Argentine surrealist Jorge Macchi.

This exhibition was organised by five young curators studying the Gallery Studies & Critical Curating MA at the University of Essex's Art History and Theory department
