Abstract

This group exhibition proposes a re-­consideraon of London as a capital city. The term capital is considered in reference to the city and money. Works in photography and the moving image by seven artists form a unique set of immersive, embodied, encounters and reflections upon London in a strange tme of deep economic recession and international attention. The artists’ works highlight London’s relation to power, history, trade and economic capital. London is depicted in contrast to the narrative of the moment, in a complex and fragmented relation to its history; a site of exchange, speculation, gendered power, surveillance, commodity display, desire and consumption, offering renewed reflection upon the city and contemporary economic conditions. Capital is curated by Fergus Heron and Martin Newth
