Deep Revolt: Arlo Mountford

Opening Night

Friday 11 May 2018

6:00PM - 8:00PM

Join us at 6pm, Friday 11 May to mark the opening of Deep Revolt, being officially launched by Ryan Johnston, Director of Buxton Contemporary. Deep Revolt is a mid career survey of Mountford's work curated by Director, Gina Mobayed. Mountford is a prolific artist whose large scale video installations, sculpture and animations take a wry look at the artistic canon through the lens of the contemporary. This exhibition brings together animated films, kinetic sculpture and drawings that take us on a jaunt through iconic museums, masterpieces and movements across centuries and showcase Mountford's mastery of animation over time. Laden with references from art history and pop culture, Mountford plays with our ideas of the linear and familiar - his works are a fascinating, funny and unforgiving experience.
