Right 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 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 snapshot 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.

Curated by Paul Emmanuel and Craig Wood, RightNow! includes the work of Steve Adamson, Philippe Bradshaw, Ian Davenport, David Fryer, Christopher Purnell, Bridget Smith and Craig Wood.

Right Now! is at the Mission Gallery, Swansea from25 April - 7 June Private View: 7pm Saturday 25 April, opened by Jonathan Watkins, Director, IKON Gallery, Birmingham. In Conversation: 2pm Saturday 30 May - Right Now! curators and artists Paul Emmanuel and Craig Wood, in conversation with Jonathan Watkins, Director of IKON Gallery, Birmingham.
