Left in Vision 2 is an exhibition of work by left wing artists from across Britain and the world. It features Haitian street artist, Andre Eugene, Egyptian photographer Yasser Alwan, Chilean painter Hector Lopez-Kern and East End sculptor May Ayres, among over fifty artists represented.
The show is organised in conjunction with the Marxism 2008 Festival and takes place in the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in Malet Street in Bloomsbury, from 3-7 July 10am – 7pm, with a Launch at 5.30pm on Friday 4 July. Both the launch and the show are open to members of the public who are not attending the Marxism event.
Much of the work deals with familiar left themes, such as war and racism, but there is also much that is not directly political: abstract painting, traditional portraiture, surrealist sculpture, art and documentary photography, and cutting edge relational art film making are all included. All of it, however, challenges the values of a society based on exploitation and driven by profit. It will be of interest to everyone who enjoys contemporary art.
