Artist of the Day - Seba Kurtis selected by Simon Roberts
We are pleased to announce the 23rd edition of Artist of the Day, a valuable platform for artists since 1983. This two week exhibition showcases the work of ten artists, chosen not by the gallery, but by established professional practitioners who have each nominated a talent of their choice.
Our first Artist of the Day is Seba Kurtis selected by Simon Roberts, who will exhibit a one-day solo show on Monday 20th June, 11am - 7pm.
“I was born in Argentina in 1974. I studied journalism in Buenos Aires before leaving the country for Europe in the wake of the political and economic crisis of 2001. Several years spent as an illegal immigrant have informed much of my work, which explores the personal, social and cultural impact of irregular migration.” Kurtis.
“Magical realism would be the best words I can find to describe Seba Kurtis’ bleached-out, disorientating and often abstract compositions. His photographic practice is heavily informed by personal experiences of crisis and exile, resulting in works with a rawness and energy the like I’ve not seen for some time.” Roberts
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to join us at 1pm for a free Talk with both artists and refreshments.
