The Mighty Scheme is Graham Fagen‘s first solo exhibition in London since ‘The Golden Age’ his 2001 show at the ICA. This exhibition is a collaboration between Matt’s Gallery and CGP London and takes place at The Gallery, Dilston Grove, Southwark Park, London SE16 2UA and runs from Thursday May 5th to June 26th.
The Mighty Scheme presents Fagen’s most ambitious survey exhibition to date, in part comprising a new body of work originally conceived and exhibited as part of the Scotland + Venice, 56th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale (curated by Lucy Byatt, Director of Hospitalfield, Arbroath). The Venetian works were made in response to the four noble rooms of Palazzo Fontana, a 16th century building located on the Grand Canal in Venice.
The Mighty Scheme brings together this impressive body of work together with recent works on paper commissioned by Glasgow School of Art as part of GENERATION: 25 Years of Contemporary Art in Scotland and other new work previously unseen.
