Curated by Ismail Erbil

Deadline for applications: Thursday 21st May 2015

Exhibition dates: 03.06.15 – 04.07.2015
Gallery opening times: Thursday, Friday & Saturdays 1 – 6 pm or by  appointment

Whitechapel Gallery’s First Thursdays: 4th June & 2nd July 2015, 6 – 9 pm

‘ex-ca-vate-site-two’ is a group show in an open call format curated by artist-curator Ismail Erbil that investigates the relationship between finished works and those found in the artist’s studios, thinking of this relationship as a type of excavation.   Re-visiting the studio in a gallery environment Erbil records and reconsiders curatorial relationships and questions the context of the gallery versus the studio revealing often hidden or unseen aspects of an artist’s practice. Displaying a sense of unearthed visions creates unorthodox sites of interaction between artworks, the gallery space and the viewer.  A large structure in the centre of the gallery references Joseph Beuys sculpture work ‘Fat Battery’ 1963 and Meret Oppenheim object 1936.  This investigation at Schwartz Gallery extends from Erbil’s ideas of ‘digging’ for minimalist visions, saturation and construction as a dimension of the artist’s role, questioning the act of erasing and displaying broken artworks.  The viewer will also have the option to be guided by the gallery assistants to link up finished objects with studio objects disrupting their process of engaging with the exhibition and shifting their role into that of active agent in the context of the exhibition as an installation.

Artists are encouraged to apply with work that responds to the above ideas of excavation, unearthed visions and the idea of finishes versus the unfinished.
