|THE FUTURE CAN WAIT 2010 | Curated by Zavier Ellis & Simon Rumley|
|Exhibition Dates : Wednesday October 13th – Sunday October 17th 2010|
|Ellis Rumley Projects is delighted to present THE FUTURE CAN WAIT for the fourth year running at its new location, Shoreditch Town Hall, Old Street.
With their tastes for the sinister, macabre and mysterious, Zavier Ellis, Director of the Old St gallery CHARLIE SMITH LONDON, and Simon Rumley, notorious independent horror film maker, promise to make THE FUTURE CAN WAIT in the ghostly basement of Shoreditch Town Hall essential, challenging and beguiling viewing as Frieze Art Fair’s only remaining legitimate satellite event.
Launched in 2007, THE FUTURE CAN WAIT was conceived as a complement to London’s Frieze week and an alternative to the art fair system with its emphasis on curatorial presentation. Featuring anything between 30 and 50 cutting edge London based or educated artists working across mediums including painting, video, photography, sound, installation and performance, THE FUTURE CAN WAIT has become a key barometer of London’s rising talent. Artists exhibited in previous years include Gordon Cheung, Stella Vine, Tessa Farmer, Monica Ursina Jäger, Alexander Hoda, Tim Ellis, James Jessop, Gavin Nolan, John Stark and Sam Jackson.
|“Promises to reveal tomorrow’s art stars”
“Bringing together the freshest and most promising stars of tomorrow”
“The Future Can Wait stands out as something special…the perfect space for mind-bending installations”
“Laced with gems”
“If you want to know what’s really happening in the London art scene, don’t go to Saatchi, go to this. This show will be a blast, not a breath, of fresh air in an art world that badly needs just this.”
“Zavier Ellis' programme has a real buzz generated by a willingness to experiment and a keen-eyed identification of new talent.”
“Zavier Ellis' glimpse of the future of contemporary art promises to span multiple mediums and we are reminded of his genuine pedigree at picking out talent at this stage.”
