To My Twenties

by The Auction Collective | London

To My Twenties, a group exhibition and auction that celebrates the formative and creative years of artists in their twenties.

Inspired by Kenneth Koch’s poem (see here) and a plethora of art history, To My Twenties brings together an international mix of 21 contemporary artists each in their twenties today.

Each artist has been selected for their pioneering approaches to their medium and their commitment to push the boundaries of contemporary art. Graduates of Royal College of Art, Central Saint Martins, Complutense University of Madrid, City and Guilds and more, the artists include:

Abigail Robertson, Alexander Glass, Antoine Langenieux Villard, Billy Baghilhole, Cybi Williams, Daniel Fletcher, Eddie Howard, Ellie MacGarry, Emilie Fitzgerald, Gabriel Choto, James Prapaithong, James Rogers, Jesu Moratiel, Karanjit Panesar, Klaus is Koming, Mary Savva, Raen Barnsley and Rayvenn D’Clark.

The show will take place at the former Central Saint Martins College campus, 12 Southampton Row. Currently occupied by The Koppel Project, it will be the last exhibition to take place in the historic premises before being developed into a hotel.

The Central School of Art and Design was first formed at the location in 1896 and was later joined by Saint Martin’s School of Art in 1989 when the two schools merged. Before moving to its current location at King’s Cross in 2011, the campus saw a impressive number of emerging stars pass through its doors. Artists include Richard Deacon, Cathy Lomax, Raqib Shaw, Antony Gormley and Laure Prouvost, designers Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney, and musicians Paloma Faith and Jarvis Cocker.

To document today’s gathering of the next-generation of talent within the building, each artist in To My Twenties is including a self-portrait that will be curated together as a ‘Class of 2020’ and final farewell to the historic space.

To My Twenties brings together painting, sculpture, drawing, film and innovative artistic processes such as 3D printing. All artwork will be available to buy at auction on the final day of the exhibition.
