Seventeen exhibits and represents emerging artists, with a particular focus on moving image. Founded in 2005 the gallery was initially located in Shoreditch and moved in 2014 into a larger, more versatile space in Dalston. The programme demonstrates a tendency toward video, screen-based work and experiments with new digital technologies and the majority of represented artists have a significant video and film component to their practice.

    Rhys Coren: Solitary Social

    04 June - 31 July 2021
    Coren works with animation, painted marquetry, writing, light, terrazzo, silk screen, carpet, sound and performance. Each media displays an obvious pleasure in rhythm, form, colour, texture, space and negative space. The wall works contain cartoon-like clouds broken by grids of colour and texture, raking perspectives, occasional body parts, drop shadows, disco floors and the interplay of frenetic lines. Coren describes the direct link between his experience of music and the visual language of his practice, crediting the structure and strategies found in electronic dance music, jazz and disco as the genesis of the works.
