The Black & White Project
August 12 – September 11, 2016
Curated by Yifat Gat for Look & Listen
“The very nature of working in The Black & White Project lends a sense of unity, which facilitates the assemblage of works from a broad range. Illustrative, grid-based, drawing, embroidery, reductive, graphic, intuitive and freehand are just some of the approaches represented here. This curatorial exercise seeks to highlight at once both similarities and differences, creating a rich mixture of dialogues and contrasts.”

The Black & White Project is an ongoing exploration that started as a curatorial post on the Look & Listen blog. In 2014 it was expanded into an exhibition at the Look & Listen Gallery, presenting works by 30 international artists. An accompanying publication including works by 100 artists from around the world was added specifically for the London Sluice Art fair. A print edition with works by 6 artists, printed by Atelier Tchikebe, was added to the project in 2015.
This exhibition at Transmitter will be the fifth iteration of The Black & White Project, featuring 59 artists from around the world.
