Common Ground

Common Ground is the inaugural show of Latymer Projects, which will open its doors to the public on Fri 20 Jan 2012.

Common Ground presents works from four local and London based artists which question our relationship with history, the urban landscape and popular culture. Exploring our positions in the contexts in which we live and work the show asks: do we collude with or critique what we
encounter in our everyday environments?

Featuring Constantine Gras, Dee Harding, Olga Koroleva and Alex Ressel. The artists in the exhibition make works that implicate themselves in an established narrative or language that attempt to stage an interruption or counter official interpretations and received views.

Latymer Projects is a newly opened artist-led project space in West London, which supports recent graduates, emerging artists and those returning to practice after a break. Initiated by group+work, Latymer Projects operates under the common values of self-help, shared responsibility, democracy and equality within a creative and supportive community.
