The New Beauty of Our Modern Life

Higher Pictures latest exhibition, The New Beauty of Our Modern Life, curated by Kate Steciw, highlights the importance of potential. Everything is information, everything is material, and everything is up for grabs. Focusing on the flexible nature of images and material, the exhibition looks at a world over-saturated with information, and how artists configure the existing information to reveal aesthetic horizons. Artist include Sara Cwynar, Alex Da Corte, Rachel de Joode, Ethan Greenbaum, Asha Schechter, Kate Steciw, Yannick Val Gesto and Harm Van Den Dorpel.

Open until March 1st at Higher Pictures Gallery.
