Translate / Transcribe a title inspired by the almost universal act entered into by all artists. The act of absorption and re-distribution of ideas, the sharing of information, the passing on of tradition. In this context, the artists involved share a series of ideas that come explicitly from a contemporary western approach to art making.

Translate / Transcribe will offer a focus on divergent art practices, radical gestures and critical dialogue in both content and presentation.
Translate / Transcribe examines our past, our present and our future as a global community of artists working - and art audiences looking - in context of the current information revolution.

This exhibition of young and emerging artists from the UK will be the first show of it’s kind for Russian art audiences, highlighting new ways in which orthodoxy and acceptability may be challenged. It brings together artists whose work includes installation, painting, video and sculpture.
The artists included here are emerging talents both in London and on the international art scene.
