Conscious Unconscious at Modern Art Oxford. British artist Stephen Willats’ solo show, which opens to the public this Saturday.
He articulates his investigation of ‘how we see ourselves and how others see us’ with previously unseen works and drawings. Great event! If you have the chance, don’t miss it!
British artist Stephen Willats’ visually intense works explore the nature of human interaction, communication and connection between individuals and communities.
Conscious – Unconscious, the artist’s fourth exhibition at Modern Art Oxford, and continues a connection with the gallery which began in 1968. This latest exhibition examines social interaction, the influence of technology on daily life and the way we look at and think about our surroundings.
Unique to this exhibition is The Oxford Community Data Stream, a new commission that presents alternative and highly personal perspectives on life in Oxford through a collaboration with residents of Kennington and Blackbird Leys.
The final work is shown in three parts; at the gallery and also in each of the participant neighbourhoods positioned in the window of the Agnes Smith Advice Centre at Blackbird Leys, and in the foyer of the Kennington Village Hall.
Also keep an eye out for installations of another new work People and Diagrams in shops around the city, more details coming soon.
