The inaugural exhibition at Schoeni Projects’ London space, a Victorian townhouse in South West London, the exhibition, titled disCONNECT, transforms the period building – currently under renovation - with new site-specific works from ten urban artists working across seven countries. The exhibition is presented in close collaboration with HKwalls – a Hong-Kong based non-profit arts organisation that aims to create opportunities for local and international artists to showcase their talent through the mediums of street art and street culture.
Now opening during the COVID-19 pandemic, the exhibition is adapted to not only adhere to lockdown restrictions, but also to reflect on the creative and physical constraints of the current global crisis, exploring psychological and political reactions to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the role of technology as conduit between the two. Accessible to online audiences through Matterport, each work is further activated through an accompanying programme of digital initiatives, including downloadable art works, online videos, virtual tour and an Instagram Live artist interview series. The exhibition also encourages the public to submit their own artworks for potential inclusion.
