A London-based artists' group presenting new work through a gallery space and a printed periodical.
Five Years is a London-based artists' group and exhibiting association. It presents new work through two principal channels - a gallery space and a printed periodical. The gallery programme is selected by 12 artists, and each artist presents two projects: one of these may include or focus on their own work; the other is offered to a guest artist. Consequently, the gallery continually branches off into unpredictable territory, beyond any unified directorship. The periodical does not directly represent the gallery programme, but provides a parallel space to the gallery. Exhibited artists submit new, related work made for the publication. Five Years provides an organ of production, presentation, exposure, publicity and distribution that contributors adapt to their own purposes.
