ALICE BLACK is pleased to announce Andre Stitt: 'space, hope + altered estates', a dual-location exhibition, hosted concurrently at ALICE BLACK, London and TEN, Cardiff.
Andre Stitt was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1958. Working almost exclusively as a performance and interdisciplinary artist from 1976-2008, Stitt gained an international reputation for cutting edge, provocative and politically challenging work. A predominant theme in his artistic output was that of communities and their dissolution often relating to trauma and civil conflict, advocating art as a redemptive proposition. During this period his live performance and installation works were presented at major museums and galleries throughout the world including; MoMA PS1, New York City (2000), Venice Biennale (2005), Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, United Kingdom (2005), Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (2008). In 2008 and again in 2015, Stitt was awarded a major Creative Wales Award to develop his work and has since radically changed the focus of his art practice to painting.
