Here & Now

5 Jun-6 Jul 2024

JD Malat Gallery
London W1K 4NB


JD Malat Gallery’s forthcoming group exhibition, Here & Now, will bring together both represented artists and new artistic voices from outside of the gallery’s roster. Presenting a convergence of diverse practices and creative visions, Here & Now seeks to demonstrate the multifaceted approaches of contemporary artists working today, capturing a vivid picture of identity, the human experience, and the raw vulnerabilities of modern life. 

Here & Now strives to amplify the socially engaged nature of diverse artistic practices by bringing together recent work by previously exhibited artist Marcel Rusu and gallery artists Emily Gillbanks, Sophie-Yen Bretez, Georg Oskar, Celine Ali, Ayanfe Olarinde, Yann Leto, Ur Kasin, Ed Moses, Andy Moses, Santiago Parra, Luis Olaso, and Conrad Jon Godly. The exhibition will also present works for the first time by artists Horacio Quiroz, Hattie Malcomson, Mehmet Cevik and Mark Jenkins. 

The selection of works due to be exhibited will provide a glimpse into what it means to create and capture life in this contemporary age. From the semi-corporeal-topographical realms depicted in the oil paintings by Mexican artist Horacio Quiroz, to the eye-biting sculptures by American street artist Mark Jenkins, Here & Now reveals how different mediums offer vessels for contemplating a multitude of themes surrounding the human body such as beauty, the grotesque, the absurd, and performativity.
