Don’t miss the ‘Death of the Spectacle’ exhibition this week


The MA Art History and Visual Culture postgraduate students from Richmond American University London are excited to announce their first art exhibition, ‘Death of the Spectacle’.

The show will be hosted at 37 Kensington High Street, W8 5SE.

Opening night will take place on Thursday, July 27 from 18:00-21:00, and the exhibition will remain open through Saturday, July 29, from 10:00 to 17:00.

The ‘Death of the Spectacle’ exhibition was conceived while reflecting upon the meaning of the spectacle as a form of amusement, pleasure, and meditation which has been constantly altered by the evolution of culture and society. Due to the saturated universe of media that surrounds our lives with an excessive visual culture, we are no longer amused, entertained, or excited by the current world of excess.

What is the spectacle? Which shape, colour, and meaning does the spectacle have for you?

The exhibition responds to these questions by displaying a various range of pieces created by London-based artists, all sharing in the same, peculiar vision; making art to express feelings.

The exhibition will be showcasing paintings, photographs, installations, literature, videos, and sculptures through the eyes of some talented artists who have been working alongside the postgraduate students to put together an exhibition aimed to create discourse regarding various visions of the spectacle.
