The East Wing Collection is a student-organised biennial exhibition of contemporary art that takes place in the communal spaces of the Courtauld Institute of Art, opposite the Courtauld collection galleries in the East Wing of the North block at Somerset House.
Entitled Culture Bound, the 2006-07 exhibition will showcase artists’ responses to the cultural realities of the metropolis, representing the interactions of groups and individuals with and within the ‘global city’.
Artists participating in the exhibition include Olga Chernysheva, Jeremy Deller, Elmgreen & Dragset, Stephen Gill, Michael Takeo Magruder, Grayson Perry, Thomas Struth and Gavin Turk. The exhibition will be accompanied by a lively programme of artists’ talks, lectures, screenings and public tours.
The exhibition runs from January 2006 to July 2007. For more information please follow this link to the East Wing Collection website.
