Division of Labour are proud to announce Sam Curtis has been selected for the Whitechapel Open

The London Open 2015 is a Whitechapel Gallery triennial exhibition. Sculpture, painting, performance, moving image, photography, printmaking and many other media and practices showcase some of the most dynamic work being made across the capital in 2015, 48 artists have been selected by a panel of high profile art world figures, including writer and critic Ben Luke, artist Angela de la Cruz, collector Nicoletta Fiorucci, gallerist Jake Miller and Whitechapel Gallery curators Daniel Herrmann, Eisler Curator and Head of Curatorial Studies and Poppy Bowers, Assistant Curator.

Manual labour and the ways we work is a theme investigated throughout the exhibition. A number of artists use more traditional techniques such as painting and photography whilst others use more unconventional methods from bricklaying to using panes of glass in their practice to explore the world today. The exhibition includes a fully functioning fishmonger’s counter in the galleries by Sam Curtis.
