Zabludowicz Collection - Infinite City
See SMEED, DACE & WALLIS from the 'Box Factories' Collection in the Zabludowicz Collection shop for the duration of 'Infinite City'. 27th Feb - 11th May, free entry Infinite City is an exhibition exploring the city as material, site and situation for the contemporary lived experience. Curated by Elizabeth Neilson, Director, Zabludowicz Collection and Joseph del Pesco, Director, Kadist Art Foundation, the project was initiated as a collaboration between two significant international contemporary art collections.
Works by nine international artists are drawn in equal measure from the two collections, encompassing a diverse range of media and approaches. Linking these artworks together is the question of whether cities are shaped by their inhabitants, or if inhabitants are shaped by the cities in which they live.
Since 2007 the majority of the world's population has been urban. The physical and spatial experience of a city is a global language —a language of architecture and affluence, crowds and traffic, poverty and noise. Whether we extol or condemn particular features of a certain city, it feels increasingly urgent to consider the multiple meanings ‘the city’ might contain.
