Right Now! curated by Paul Emmanuel & Craig Wood
- 25 April — 7 June 2015 *on now
Taking its title from the opening lines of the Sex Pistols' Anarchy in the UK, Right Now! is an exhibition which brings together again a group of Goldsmith's graduates who, in 1988, presented a show titled Current at the Mission Gallery.
The invitation from Mission Gallery to revisit this event is not just a review of sorts. Right Now! looks at the trajectories of lives from one fixed point, that of an historic art exhibition. Right Now! is a snap shot in time. It is a framework in which to examine the legacy of a definitive period in British Contemporary Art. The focus is on the lives of the people involved and the directions in which they have travelled.
