BB #2 Vicky Wright

25 Mar – 7 May 2011

BLACKBOARD: Vicky Wright. For the next Blackboard, Vicky Wright presents a continuation of her Extraction and Guardian series, an ongoing project focusing on the paradoxical nature of portraiture, politics and patronage.

Wright will present ’Altarpiece Redux’: an Iconoclastic revisitation of the altarpiece (as a blackboard).

Vicky Wright (b. Bolton, 1967) studied at the RCA and Goldsmiths. Recent exhibitions include The Informants, Josh Lilley Gallery, London (2010) and Comma 14, Bloomberg SPACE, London (2009).

BLACKBOARD is a new project involving artists who have studios with SPACE. For each exhibition cycle a studio artist will be invited to make an intervention on a blackboard hung behind the front desk of the Triangle building. The first participants were the design group Modern Activity who occupy a studio in the Triangle building.
