The ACF London presents Disagreements as Domains of Nausea and Elation, a group exhibition featuring the work of twelve early-career artists who work across installation, performance, painting, sculpture, sound and new media.
Artists include: Jakob Braito | Tom Bull | Emma Aldjia Belabed (with Magnus Westwell and George Harvey) | Lucia Kagramanyan | Julia Karpov | Robyn McKenzie | Fritjof Krabbe Nørretranders | Rosa Knecht | Josh Woolford | Emmanuel Shogbolu (SCATTSMAN) | Lera Weinrub | Tiffany Wellington
What are the ways today in which we can foster a greater resilience to better withstand as well as understand external shocks and internal crises? Disagreements operates as an excerpt of the current times experienced by artists whose works create unease, include grave affects, or reinduce the poetics and politics of the everyday life.
Curated by Nimco Kulmiye Hussein
Disagreements as Domains of Nausea and Elation will be accompanied by a publication, designed by Marta Úrbez, featuring exhibition essays and a documentation of the exhibition. An online platform will also connect the exhibition to a broader international audience, further opening up the artistic processes of the participating artists.
This exhibition is part of our Curatorial Residency Programme in partnership with the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and Central Saint Martins London. Graduates from the Culture, Criticism and Curation Master travel to Vienna and select graduates from the Academy to present alongside UK artists at an exhibition in London. This project was initiated in 2015 and brought dozens of UK and Austrian based artists together with UK curators.
Thursday 29 June, 7pm

Joshua Woolford is a transdisciplinary artist working between performance, painting, sculpture, sound and installation.
