Under the Radar: Contemporary Masters  from Central & Eastern Europe

October 1st – 6th, 2019

107 – 109 Great Portland Street, London, W1W 6QG

Long deprived of the spotlight, whether due to geographical, social or political reasons, many leading Central & Eastern European (CEE) artists have been kept in the shadows of the global art scene. Gaining awareness in the last decade, a revival of CEE art is taking place, supported by global trendsetters, such as major institutions, galleries and collectors.

The Hungarian Dóra Maurer is having her first major solo-exhibition at the Tate Modern and at the White Cube Gallery. Stanislav Kolíbal is currently representing the Czech Republic at the Venice Biennial, and the Romanian Geta Brătescu had her long-waited premier at London’s foremost mega-gallery, Hauser and Wirth in early 2019.

With a growing appetite for the arts of the CEE region, more and more artists are reaching their long-deserved status. Still, many are yet to be shown and introduced to the international art world.

The title Under the Radar has a double meaning and describes both groups. From one side it refers to artists who have not been discovered, or to say, have not found the exposure they deserve. From the other side it should be read directly; artists who are now being recognized, repositioned, canonized and broadly collected.

Under the Radar: Contemporary Masters from Central & Eastern Europe brings together a selected group of CEE artists, aiming to provide a global platform for artists from both sides of the radar. Showcasing works by internationally acclaimed artists stands as the cornerstone of the exhibition, while (re-)introducing lesser-known artists, like Sándor Kecskeméti (HU), Wanda Czelkowska (PL) or Constantin Flondor (RO) shows our commitment to nurture the hidden values of the CEE region.

We believe, that by bringing a well-selected group of artworks to London from a wide spectrum of both locally and globally significant artists, we can provide the right context and exposure to the continuing appraisal of Central & Eastern Europe art.
