LUBOMIROV / ANGUS-HUGHES is a charitable organisation dedicated to contemporary curation. We see curators as localised experts in a global and increasingly complex contemporary art world. By engaging with all forms and levels of curation, we aim to present to the public a wider picture of art today. We also invite curatorial projects by artists, art critics, collectors, gallerists and other members of the art world, who both wield influence in the shaping of new art and have a uniquely valuable perspective on current and future state.
Every month the Lubomirov Angus-Hughes gallery office is curated by the team, drawing from their collection of editions and small works by artists who have previously exhibited in the gallery, or will be in our current or future programme. This evolving space engages with the history of the gallery through curation in a more traditional sense, showcasing our growing community of artists.
The second group show brought about through the continued conversations of a diverse group of artists that started out based in London. They each have made work independently to bring to the HIVE gallery space and co-curated the show through dialogues raised by the juxtaposition of complementary and contradictory pieces. The show explores the connections each artist has with others in the group, and how their work responds to the context presented by the variety of works in the space.
