Famous for his ground breaking exhibitions of the 1980’s,Ricky Burnett, at the invitation of Mark Read of the Everard Read Gallery, has assembled an exhibtion of work from sixty artists from across the country. The arists were invited to entertain the idea “horse” and the request initiated a rich variety of responses. The exhibition is both an expression and a celebration of diversity – horse as partner, horse as victim, horse as power, horse as property, horse as sexuality. Horse on paper, on film, on canvas, in
sound, in light and in performance.
This is an unusual undertaking for a commercial gallery. Both Ricky Burnett and Mark Read are excited by the experiment and hope that many people will take advantage of this rare opportunity to get a new sense of our intellectual and creative life. A publication on the exhibition will be released in late October and will contributions from many well-known writers. Interested people are encouraged to contact the gallery to reserve their copy.
The exhibition will run from 8 September to 30 October 2011
Gallery Hours: Monday to Friday 9am–6pm, Saturday 9am–1pm
