Studio 7 Shoreditch is an extension of the acrylicize collective's neighbouring studios; an award winning collective of artists, designers and craftsmen, disrupting both the traditional art world model and accepted notions of branding. By playing in the space between Art and Design we tell the unique stories of our global clients, creating bespoke artworks that champion our concept of ‘Art as Identity’.
A team made up of 25 individual members, all with a background in the arts, will be creating their own works around the concept 'Everything Has Been Done Before' and exhibiting in this one-night special, accompanied by live music and drinks.
The concept is inspired by a conversation the artist's often have in the studio addressing the purity of an idea against the backdrop of unlimited information - having a thought then finding something similar already exists out there.
Does this make the idea less relevant? Should that prevent someone from doing that idea?How many great ideas have not got off the ground because of this? Is the fact that people make similar work actually a movement? Would it have been different before the internet age? If so, has the internet fucked everything up`/ What is the cultural significance of all of this?
acrylicize think these are important questions that are very relevant to their practice, industry and the culture as a whole.
