It is with great pleasure that we announce an exhibition of “Young Masters: Dialogues” at the renowned Old Master Gallery Sphinx Fine Art. The curated exhibition carefully juxtaposes Old Master works from the Sphinx Fine Art collection with newer contemporary work created by Young Masters artists 2009-2014 and new guest artists. These artists include both established artists and recent graduates from leading London art schools (including Royal Academy Schools, Wimbledon College of Arts and the Royal College of Art).
This exhibition questions and celebrates the role of the past in contemporary art, by traversing genre, medium and time. In this exhibition, works from across the world and from a wide range of cultural backgrounds are brought together, giving this show a real international scope. A wide range of contemporary approaches to art history is surveyed, through both associative pairings and direct dialogue with a specific work in the Sphinx Fine Art collection, resulting in intriguing connections and dialogues, thus creating a thought-provoking exhibition.
All works are available for sale, and the profits are reinvested into the initiative to allow the furtherance of support to young and emerging artists. Daisy McMullan (MA Curating, Chelsea College of Arts) is the curator of this exhibit.
