Cristea Roberts Gallery presents Just what is it…?, a group exhibition bringing together paintings and works on paper from four artists, new to the gallery, whose practice examines the concept and meaning of ‘home’, the definition of which has shifted for so many during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The title of the exhibition is taken from Richard Hamilton’s iconic 1956 collage Just what is it that makes today’s homes so different, so appealing?, which was created for the exhibition This is Tomorrow at the Whitechapel Art Gallery, London, and became a symbol of British Pop Art.
In very different ways, all four of these artists are creating highly personal domestic spaces that reflect the world they live in and their place within it.
