Exploring boundaries between cities, cultures and institutions, laced together through the poetics of space, Wanderings documents the varying approaches to city life of a select group of emerging international artists.
The emerging talent of London’s promising contemporary art scene meets Latin American artists quenching their wanderlust on new shores, and a team of Italian twins welding together art and fashion. This exhibition is the brainchild of a collective of Goldsmiths based curators, entrepreneurs and artists.
