Afterall, the magazine, is a semi-annual critical journal of art, context and enquiry that gives prominence to the work of artists and its effect on the wider cultural and political debate. Issue #7 of Afterall is being realized as an exhibition for apexart and pivots around the idea of the gothic as both the dark side of artistic behavior and complex visual patterning.

“Artists provide some of the best responses in an intensely political time when real antagonistic political discourse has ceased. There are often overtly and unquestionably political works that reflect our fearful situation. But looking beyond the surface, another approach to the political becomes possible - an approach that adopts and adapts the aberrant, the privately obsessive, the twist in the gothic to make its point about how an individual can put up some resistance to conformity and take a position in the world.”

Charles Esche is the Director of Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, Netherlands and is a co-editor of Afterall along with Mark Lewis and Thomas Lawson.

A full color brochure containing an essay by Charles Esche will be available free of charge. See website for details. Please contact apexart for further information. Gallery hours are Tuesday to Saturday, 11-6.

All events are open to the public and free.
