Ellis Rumley Projects is delighted to invite you to the second
edition of THE FUTURE CAN WAIT.
Launched with huge success in 2007, THE FUTURE CAN WAIT was
devised as a museum scale exhibition for leading emerging
to mid career artists. Situated in a spectacular 22,000 sq
ft industrial space in Brick Lane’s Old Truman Brewery
the exhibition will feature 48 London based or educated artists
working in painting, video, performance, sculpture and installation.
Conceived to complement and contrast Frieze and its satellite
events, THE FUTURE CAN WAIT is London’s largest curated
exhibition and provides a much needed alternative to the art
fair routine. It is an overview of London’s most promising
artists, most of whom are already achieving international
recognition from collectors, galleries and museums. With a
preponderance of mainline issues such as death, mortality,
beauty, horror, the self, sexuality, psychological intensity
and the everyday, THE FUTURE CAN WAIT promises to be engaging
and essential viewing during London’s Frieze week.
