Shotgun Studios is an independent art and music venue that strives to push the boundaries of the conventional gallery concept.
We provide a platform for emerging artists to showcase up and coming projects, and we encourage collaborations between visual artists, performers and musicians. This flexible space allows London's leading emerging artists to fully develop and showcase their vision in a down-to-earth and welcoming atmosphere.
We run a transparent yet strict artist selection criteria. Once selected, our multidisciplinary team of organised artists work within a team environment, facilitating creative discussion, peer review and adjustment - challenging the artist's ideas of what is possible for an exhibition.
CURRENT EXHIBITION•ECHO CHAMBER
Echo Chamber will have an extended run of 6 weeks, from June 1st – July 15th at Shotgun Studios, Acton - London
Gallery opening hours are Tuesday - Friday 3-9pm and 10-4pm on the weekends
"MELTING PLASTIC and burnt painted figures fight for space in Conrad Armstrong’s newest exhibition Echo Chamber."
An exploration into the constancy of societal figures and the perpetuating narcissism of social media – Echo Chamber creates a contrast between anchors of truth and subjective reality. This grappling of ideas is illustrated by Armstrong’s intense creative process, as opposing materials burn and deform together, forging striking visualisations that emerge through the destruction.
Tapped as one of the Top 10 Artists To Watch in 2017 by Artist and Illustrator Magazine, Echo Chamber is a challenging and disruptive solo exhibition.
