Armsden – Last and First Men. Towards A New Anthropology.

13 - 24 June 2012

Drawing on the title of Olaf Stapledon’s breath-taking account of the evolutionary rise and fall of eighteen distinct races of men, Last and First Men. Towards a New Anthropology explores the interplay of anthropological concerns and contemporary art practice.
The exhibition surveys the relationships between documentary and ethnographic study via a body of artists who look to myth, memory traces and the significance of ancestry in relation to the social and cultural organisation of human societies, as well as addressing humanity’s shifting and uncertain relationships with technology and the natural world.
Anthropology holds a central place within the histories of both modernism and postmodernism. From the importance of non-western cultures to the Surrealists in the early 1930s, to the role of science and medicine in Jeffrey Deitch’s Post Human (1992). Last and First Men. Towards a New Anthropology suggests its renewed importance in contemporary art practice, presenting a diverse group of dynamic emerging and mid-career artists whose work engages with a complex dialogue of ritual, cosmology, ecology and technology.

Works By: Reinhard Behrens, Vincent Chevillon, Jan Crombie, Adam Dix, Adam Jeppeson, Namsa Leuba, Charlotte McDonald, David Price and Jane Wafer.
