New show explores “the concept of sharing in the digital age”

In the last few years, we’ve seen a number of artists and designers looking to that old surrealist parlour game, Exquisite Corpse, or consequences, in a bid to forge exciting new collaborations.

Now, street art is also facing the consequences, in a new east London exhibition of the same name.

The group show looks to examine “the concept of sharing in the digital age”, according to the show’s producer Alessia De Pasquale.

The idea for the exhibition came about when De Pasquale noticed that the very physical nature of street art was also one of the modes of expression most actively engaging in social media, according to the show organisers. Realising the potential through such channels to engage with people all over the world,  she set about inviting international  street artists she deemed to have a “strong aesthetic and proactive approach to art” to participate in an updated version of consequences.

These included 2501, Broekn Fingaz, Hin and Zio Ziegler.

Each artist was given an already-created work on paper or wood, on which they added their own marks.

The results of this creative chain will be shown at east London’s Hoxton Gallery alongside documentation of the artistic process through photographs and videos.
