Against International Standards
Private view: Saturday 6th July 2002
Open: Sunday 7th July – 27 July
24/7’s first exhibition features the work of artist Stefan Brüggemann. Brüggemann works extensively with text pieces and vinyl signs written in English, as well as with magazine pages and video. With a mix of irony and melancholy his work questions and contests the legacy of conceptual artists from the 60’s and 70’s, while making critical statements about the art world and the contemporary condition. He claims to be a twisted conceptual pop artist, a movement he created himself.
Stefan Brüggemann thinks and works in Mexico City, where he is also director of Programa Art Center, an independent art space exhibiting international contemporary art. He has recently had solo shows at Galeria de Arte Mexicano-Mexico City, O.P.A-Guadalajara and the Museum of Installation-London. His first publication “Intellectual Disaster” has just been published by GAM-Mexico City.
For this occasion 24/7-Wall Gallery uses an existing house wall located at the corner of Club Row and Redchurch Street in London’s East End as an exhibiting platform. 24/7 will exhibit work from young Latin American artists living in London and abroad while questioning the conventional clichés and representations of cultural production from Latin America.
As part of the opening event, there will be a guacamole bar in the garage and a live musical act by B-Lo and Friends.
