Milena Dragicevic: Recent British Painting (curated by Tom Morton)

Ausstellungsansicht, Grimm Gallery, 2012

Recent British Painting is an exhibition of paintings by artists based in the UK. Its plain and intellectually modest title pays homage to a particular type of trave- ling group show produced by bodies such as the Brit- ish Council in the late 1970s and early 1980s, designed to showcase British art abroad. With their absence of a foregrounded curatorial agenda, and their apparent reluctance to reflect on the cultural politics in which they were enmeshed, these exhibitions now seem very distant from contemporary practice.
