To mark its fourth anniversary this November, Hundred Years Gallery in Hoxton, East London, invited eight artists to present work not previously shown at the gallery. The selected pieces form a comprehensive collection of new and existing works by local and international artists and include a wide range of styles and media.
HYG Editions will be launched with a Private View on 19 November which also sees the opening of a photographic exploration of the inescapable problem of gentrification in London. 'The Decline of Conscience' is a photo series by Nick JS Thompson programmed by Rooms Magazine. Works from this series are the latest addition to HYG Editions.
The 'Editions' exhibition will showcase the works until 20 December after which they will remain available for a limited period of six months. Featured artists include Helen Bermingham, Yvonne Feng, Victoria Kovalenko, Marky Lemley, Rita Says, Lex Thomas and Jaime Valtierra. The latter is the gallery’s artist-in-residence as well as instigator and curator of the show.
The programme will be complemented by a series of workshops led by the respective artists.
