Gallery 46 in Whitechapel is our new sister gallery to be used as Londonewcastle Project Space.

The Opinion Makers is an exhibition conceived as paired juxtapositions; each pair comprising one work by an artist-curator, together with one work by an artist of their choice. When artists curate they choose art in a particular way, arguably motivated or coloured by concerns within their own practice.
Conversely, when curators are practising and exhibiting artists in their own right, there is a potential opportunity to discover – through the medium of their art – curatorial motives which are either consciously or subconsciously unavailable in an exhibition itself, nor in its supporting materials, such as press releases and articles. The Opinion Makers is a pragmatic attempt to use the artist-curator as an explicit tool for understanding curation.
It is also a statement about the significantly expanded presence of the artist-led approach in the contemporary curation landscape. The Opinion Makers is organised by Iavor Lubomirov and Bella Easton – artists, curators and directors of the ALISN network and the LUBOMIROV-EASTON Project Space.
