EMBRACING THE UNDERDOG
Over 120 Artists Exhibiting for Chinese New Year:
The Year of the Dog
London Group and Friends
Curated by Susan Haire
Supported by Geoff Leong Foundation
When the entire West End is pedestrianised for Chinese New Year this exhibition will be taking place right at the very centre of the celebrations for the Year of the Dog, in Chinatown.
Over 120 artists will be showing sculptures, installations, site-specific interventions, videos, sound works and performances – a surprising diversity of works with contrasting scales and materials with many stretching creative experimentation to the limit.
People born in the Year of the Dog possess the best qualities even though sayings about dogs are often unflattering and Embracing the Underdog aspires to be supportive of the underdog in numerous ways.
In this compelling, large-scale exhibition the artists will be coming together to exhibit with a real sense of solidarity and a belief in the enduring power of art in these confusing times.
