Date:     08 June 2009
Time:     12:58 AM


"Plagiarise" is an exhibition devised to question originality and newness within fine art. 
It is a group show curated by Peckham artists Jo Dennis and Dido Hallett.

Open 19th June - 24th June, 1pm - 6pm.
Opening reception Thursday 18th June 6.30pm - 9.30pm.

As artists we are informed by art which has come before us; there is no such thing as an original
idea. Artists translate and transcode information from one format to another, wandering in geography
as well as in history.

Our globalised perception calls for new types of representation: our daily lives are played out
against a more enormous backdrop than ever before. Artists traverse a cultural landscape saturated
with signs, creating new pathways between multiple formats of expression and communication.

Participating artists are; 
Hannah Alton, Gill Bedson, Jenna Collins, Victoria Deero, Jo Dennis, Dido Hallett, James Alec Hardy,
Tanya Kaprielian, Tom Leamon, Gareth Lloyd, Joanna McCormick, Lena Pomford, Richard Somerville,
Charlotte Squire, Emma Thompson, Jacqueline Utley, Tisna Westerhof, Gary Whitworth

Amy Smyth will perform “Suite” at 8pm on the opening night.
