ABOUT


Grand National - Art From Britain
was the most extensive exhibition of works by British artists to be held in Norway in well over a decade. One of its trajectories was the position of contemporary artists working across Britain within in an internationally orientated artworld where notions of nation and national archive were no longer the dominant or defining strategies they once were.


The 2010 British election under the shadow of financial failure provided a cyclical vantage from which to revisit the UK's upending Tory politics of the late 1980s and the ensuing biting recession of the early 1990s. This was the rubble from which a new genration of artists in Britain emerged. The export of the central Young British Artists (YBA) generation is well documented, while perhaps more profoundly it is artists on the periphery of this branded establishment that arguably have laid the lasting foundation stones for some of the most progressive practices and directions of contemporary art in Britain up to the end of the first decade of the 21st century. Grand National - Art From Britain punctures the present whilst laying reach to the recent pasts of British Art. Picking up on this theme Chris Horrocks wtites in his exhibition introduction,


“…Grand National will appear as a partial survey of a time in British art where there was inflation then a crash in values, not least in cultural value. Artistic worth, it seemed, ran second to the promotion of personalities, and an uneasy co-dependency of the art establishment, the art industry, the press and a young band of artists who would first exploit an unstable market, then embark on a mutually beneficial reconstruction of the status quo. To look from our own recession to the last one is to pinpoint a brief moment when art was the simulacrum of a movement that bucked the market, before becoming it…”
(Publication extract / Chris Horrocks)
