Opening reception: Monday, 6 August 2012, 6.30pm
Since the beginning of European modernism, the concept of rhythm has had a recurrent significance to art practice. The concept of rhythm is not only a sequence of signs but a sequence of actions. It is a structuring category that controls conscious perceptions and the reception of art as a whole.
The group Rhythm Section is about the centrality of rhythm in contemporary art practice now, to explore as a collective a process of exchange about the issue of rhythm. The exchange and the dynamic that arise from research and the gathering of different approaches and media provide new starting points for the practice of art. Through presentations of different types of works in various sectors of the contemporary art scene, Rhythm Section seeks to stimulate an exchange between artists of different nationalities and help to form a network.
The current list of artists who are part of the project is characterised by a variety of media and disciplines, including painting, drawing, printmaking, installation, digital, film, video, performance and music.
