Hugo Michell Gallery presents an exhibition of work by Lucas Grogan, who began making this exhibition towards the end of 2019. He didn’t want to make a body of work about the descending dark age of nationalism, the nightmare of environmental destruction and an ever expanding pandemic. Liars, thieves and scumbags globally rose to power. They operate from the same play book of instilling fear, manipulating information and performing to their crowd.

But out of all this, Grogan has seen people actively reach out to each other; supporting and reconnecting with friends, neighbours and strangers alike. Old modes of cultural and economic connection have rapidly evolved. Social and environmental revolutions are at a tipping point. Though we’re still in the thick of it, the artist wanted to offer some sort of reprieve. He is optimistic a new enlightened dawn is inevitable and not far off.

The gallery is open and practicing COVID-19 social distancing measures.
