This eclectic and disquisitive group exhibition, conceived by Arusha Gallery’s Creative Director Agnieszka Prendota, explores two ideas related to the exhibition’s title Praxis. Firstly, notions of heritage and background as they might be discerned in the six participating artists’ works – social and cultural traditions from locations as disparate as New Mexico, Iran and Yorkshire. In a globalised, digital world, what customs and characteristics associated with the place an artist is from, or where they live, might permeate their life and work? Secondly, the exhibition invites consideration of the idea of ‘praxis’ in terms of an artist’s physical practice – the processes, methods and techniques involved in making their work, aside from their critical concerns.
