Angela de la Cruz, Matthew Higgs, Elizabeth Price
plus an outside project by Bob & Roberta Smith
3 Rooms is an exhibition of works by three artists Angela de la Cruz, Matthew Higgs and Elizabeth Price. Each artist has been given a room to realise a piece or project. Angela de la Cruz - manipulates and breaks her stretchers making works that have a physical and human quality. Her paintings are survivors of everyday life and have titles such as Ashamed, Knackered, and Misery. Her work has a refreshing irreverance and humour towards the hallowed tradition of painting. Angela de la Cruz recently showed at Galerie Krinzinger, Vienna and John Weber Gallery, New York. Matthew Higgs - work is based around books and text. He is best known for his bookpage series where he uses the title pages of various books detached from their original contexts such as Museum Piece, and Art Aint All Paint. He recently had a one person show at Murray Guy, New York. He is the publisher of Imprint 93 - an ongoing series of artists editions that last year celebrated the publication of its 50th project and is also a curator and has co-curated the current British Art Show 5 and a forthcoming show at the Whitechapel Art Gallery. Elizabeth Price - work is arrived at by somekind of process or action. Boulder for instance is a ball of brown tape started in 1997 which she has since added to regularily and at present measures 229cm in circumference. The piece is an ongoing work that has been shown a number of times in different sizes. She also recently organised Dot a project which included the participation of 40 artists and ran for one year. The exhibition of the project Snowballing is currently at Arthur R. Rose, London and will then travel to the Henry Moore Foundation.
As part of this exhibition Bob & Roberta Smith will also make a work for the outside of the building. Bob & Roberta Smith will be showing at Statements Art31 Basel in June and NEW BRITISH ART 2000 at the Tate Gallery in July.
