9th – 14th October 2012
Following the success of 2010’s critically acclaimed group exhibition Vanitas: The Transience of Earthly Pleasures, which attracted over 4,000 visitors during the Frieze Art Fair, All Visual Arts is pleased to announce its upcoming autumn exhibition, Metamorphosis: The Transformation of Being. Curated by All Visual Arts directors Joe La Placa and Mark Sanders, with guest curator Wolfgang Schoppmann of the Thomas Olbricht Foundation, the exhibition takes a thought-provoking look at the evolving language of metamorphosis and transformation spanning over 400 years in the visual arts. Set in the dilapidated grandeur of a former embassy at 33 Portland Place, the exhibition features over 100 works from 48 artists, some especially commisioned for the exhibition. Metamorphosis: The Transformation of Being will run from October the 8th to the 14th alongside this year’s Frieze Art Fair 2012. Artists in the exhibition will include Ambrosine Allen, Bertozzi & Casoni, G.L. Brierley, Jason Brooks, Jonas Burgert, Jake & Dinos Chapman, George Condo, Johan Creten, Wim Delvoye, Albrecht Dürer, Gregor Gaida, Tom Gallant, Marianna Gartner, Stefan Guggisberg, Paul Hazelton, Julie Heffernan, Alexander Hoda, John Isaacs, Reece Jones, Joanna Kirk, Dirk Lange, Vera Lehndorff & Holger Trülzsch, Wolfe von Lenkiewicz, Thomas Lerooy, Alastair Mackie, Charles Matton, Paul McCarthy, Kate MccGwire, Robert McNally, Jonathan Messe, Polly Morgan, Tim Noble & Sue Webster, Francis Picabia, Lépold Rabus, Anton Raderscheidt, Dennis Scholl, Cindy Sherman, Carolein Smit, Rebecca Stevenson, John Stezaker, Mircea Suciu, Dolly Thompsett, Jonathan Wateridge and Hugo Wilson.
