"We're delighted to provide artists with an opportunity to reach audiences who would otherwise not see their works."
(PRWEB UK) 21 April 2012
The 5-star Grange Tower Bridge hotel has been chosen to exhibit ‘Post-Conceptual Art Practice: New Directions – Part 2’, a new London exhibition by conceptual art initiative Plastic Propaganda. Referring to the plastic and theoretical process of making and authoring in art, Plastic Propaganda is the latest exhibition of work from conceptual artists William Henry and Angus Pryor – who previously exhibited in 2010 at the West Wintergarden, Canary Wharf.
The ‘New Directions – Part 2’ exhibition will comprise both conceptual painting and sculpture. Featured artworks have been installed in public areas throughout the hotel, including the lobby, foyers and restaurant, to enable each piece to be contemplated at leisure. The exhibition will remain at the Grange Tower Bridge until the end of 2012, for viewing by all guests and public visitors to the hotel.
‘Grange Hotels are very keen to showcase works of art and to provide an environment for new artists to show large and ambitious works in public spaces’, commented a spokesperson for Grange Hotels. ‘We are delighted to support Plastic Propaganda’s initiative to display their work in our hotels, and thereby provide the artists with an opportunity to reach mass audiences who would otherwise not see their works.’
Participating artists William Henry and Angus Pryor reiterate, ‘We are extremely pleased to have the chance to exhibit our work in this modern hotel arena. The essence of the hotel’s public spaces reproduces the large white cube environment of a gallery, which reacts directly to the artwork being shown here.’
This collaboration with Plastic Propaganda closely follows the support Grange has lent to other similar arts and cultural organisations in London.
