“Sometimes I dream of a work of really great breadth, ranging through the whole region of element, object, meaning and style. This I fear, will remain a dream, but is a good thing even now to bear the possibility occasionally in mind. Nothing can be rushed. It must grow, it should grow of itself, and if the time ever comes for that work - then so much the better! “ Paul Klee, On Modern Art (1948)


From Centre, curated by Saturation Point Projects and Slate Projects, is a group exhibition which surveys contemporary approaches to reductive geometric painting, drawing and sculpture. Spanning several generations of artists, born in every decade from the 1930s to the 1980s, From Centre makes the case for the growing relevance of abstract art in the UK. Curated over three floors in a converted laundry, the works exhibited expand on the notions of architectural space, surface play, systematic painting, and sense of place.

An illustrated catalogue with essays by Nathan Cohen, Laura Davidson and Alex Meurice accompanies the exhibition.
