FIGHT OR FLIGHT?
Roman Road in partnership with The Columbia is pleased to present FIGHT OR FLIGHT?, the inaugural exhibition presented in The Bakery, a newly renovated and collaborative gallery space in London. Initiated by Josh Fresco (Director of The Columbia) and Marisa Bellani (Creative Director of Roman Road), The Bakery aims to primarily showcase and promote emerging artists, bringing to its audiences an ongoing and dynamic programme of young artistic talents in the heart of West London. Marking the start of this budding partnership, FIGHT OR FLIGHT? is a group exhibition curated by Marisa Bellani, featuring some familiar names from Roman Road’s roster, together with many new local artists.
FIGHT OR FLIGHT? presents varied and multidisciplinary works by twenty UK-based artists. The show is a reflection on the opportunities that have arisen as a result of the global pandemic. FIGHT OR FLIGHT? showcases and creates synergies between artists that perhaps would not have exhibited together otherwise, centring on ideas of collaboration and integration. Clashes of subject matters, mediums and styles span across the selected works and present an intended visual disparity, asserting the idea, and the possibility, of differences coexisting alongside one another.
