Opening Saturday, January 18th at OHWOW, Los Angeles is “Bloody English,” a group exhibition curated by Ariella Wolens. This exhibition introduces the work of eight contemporary artists based in London: Charlie Billingham, Adham Faramawy, Emma Hart, Celia Hempton, Patrick Hough, Oliver Osborne, Prem Sahib, and Jesse Wine. Each with his or her own distinct sensibility, these artists have been brought together in this exhibition to determine whether nationality can be read through images, and what may be distinct about English artwork. From the heritage of Gainsborough and Turner, to the celebrity of the Young British Artists of the ‘90s, these young artists are responding to their environment whilst delineating their position within a globalized art world, forming their identity in relation to their past and transnational present.


Opening Reception: Saturday, January 18th, 2014. 6-8pm.


Bloody English is on view through February 15th, 2014.
