Opening Friday April 29 2 – 6 pm;
“Prospero's Library” began as a project inspired by both the character of Prospero in Shakespeare’s The Tempest, and the film Prospero's Books by Peter Greenaway. Imagining Prospero's magical “library of everything” was the starting point for an exhibition that is ever-expanding and transforming, as different books and items are added to it, and it magically manifests itself in different places on the globe. The idea came from Moscow-based writer and artist Mikhail Pogarsky, who invited Evelina Schatz in Milan and Gillian McIver in London to co-curate the project.
STUDIO 75 is pleased to present “Prospero's Library” in London, after the project has been touring since its inception in spring 2007. With each incarnation, different works and artists are added to the project. This exhibition of the Library will present works brought from Russia, Italy and the UK. UK based artists exhibiting include Tracey Tofield, Les Bicknell, Theresa Easton, Nicholas Wright, Annabelle Moreau
