part 2: 'Assistant' Blue Curry responds to 'Director' Gordon Cheung
Preview this Friday (4th June) 6.30-8.30 pm
Open: 5-19th June, Wed - Sat, 10-6 pm
BEARSPACE, in association with Peer Sessions, is pleased to present the second in a series of exhibitions entitled The Assistant. The exhibition seeks to pair up an emerging and an established artist with similar concerns, who enter a process of dialogue and negotiation through which the emerging artist produces an exhibition.
The Assistant aims to explore the practices of both artists through this process of exchange, but also to question ideas around the construction of an exhibition, revealing something about the processes an exhibition may go through before it is realised.
In this exhibition emerging artist Blue Curry, Goldsmiths MFA graduate, recently featured in BBC documentary Goldsmiths: But is it Art? explores his own creative methodology creating new work in response to a dialogue with established artist Gordon Cheung.
A project blog accompanies the exhibition, documenting the process of exchange and decision-making.

Also visit the Assistant Blog, for updates on the artists' progress towards the exhibition, other 'assistants' stories and discussion around assistants submitted by other artists
