Bahamian artist Blue Curry is showing his first solo presentation of work in Belgium during the most important week on the Brussels art calendar. During this week, several art fairs are happening in the city but Curry’s presentation is not one to miss which will be at Platform 102 this Saturday, April 23rd, 6pm to 9pm in UTC+02. Based in London, Curry works primarily in sculpture and installation.
Using an idiosyncratic language of commonplace objects and found materials, he engages with themes of exoticism, tourism and cultural consumption.
A graduate of the Goldsmiths Fine Art MFA program, he has exhibited extensively, participating in the sixth Liverpool Biennial, the SITE Santa Fe Biennial and the Jamaica Biennial, as well as in group shows at P.P.O.W Gallery, New York; The Art Museum of the Americas, Washington DC and the V&A Museum, London, among others. In 2011, he had his first institutional solo show ‘Stranger Than Paradise’ at the Nassauischer Kunstverein (NKV), Germany and another recent solo presentation, ‘Souvenir’, was shown at Vitrine, London, in 2014.
