All of the illustrators, graphic artists and fine artists are students or recent graduates.
Curator Christopher Hall, himself a Ravensbourne interior design and environmental architecture student, is spurred by his own research which he says shows ‘people who curate exhibitions don’t give young people the opportunity to express themselves.’
Something From Nothing therefore has a positive discrimination bent toward youth and this show has brought sixteen young artists together, each exhibiting one A2 piece.
The Some Think Funky formula may soon be applied to other disciplines including architecture which Hall hopes to form similar exhibitions around.
Something From Nothing runs from 11-13 April at The Gopher Hole 350-354 Old Street, London EC1
