About ‘Present Tense’
‘Present Tense’ spotlights the next generation of artists living and working in the UK, from emerging to mid-career, celebrating a breadth of creative talent and socially engaged practices. The multifaceted group presentation consists of 23 contemporary artists outside of the Hauser & Wirth roster, testing the boundaries of their mediums to address and confront notions of identity, consciousness, humanity and representation. Through their individual lens, each artist is responding to the cultural climate of the UK right now, depicting a range of lived experiences that co-exist and connect within the rich fabric of the same location.

The exhibition is on view through Sunday 28 April.

About Arthaus
Arthaus is a group specifically for young people aged 15 – 19 years who are interested in learning more about art and architecture, and who wish to meet other people with similar interests. They meet at the gallery once a month and have the opportunity to meet our artists, gallery team and specialists in a series of events such as workshops, conversations, tours and talks. The group helps to develop communication skills and an understanding of the art world through a range of exciting and innovative youth-led projects.

Please be advised that photographs will be taken at this event for use on the Hauser & Wirth website, social media and in other marketing materials.
