JOHN WALTER // CAPSID
Until 8 July, Thurs-Sun.
CAPSID is the latest multi-media maximalist installation by London-based British artist John Walter (b.1978), best known for Alien Sex Club. Presenting a compelling, sometimes riotous and often surreal world incorporating 250 works of art, CAPSID is the result of collaboration between Walter and molecular virologist Professor Greg Towers of University College London. This major exhibition addresses a crisis of representation surrounding viruses such as HIV, by bringing new scientific knowledge about viral capsids to the attention of the wider public. In turn, this scientific knowledge is enabling Walter to innovate artistic concepts such as collage, colour field painting and pattern- making. Made possible by a Large Arts Award from the Wellcome Trust and funding from Arts Council England Grants for the Arts, CAPSID is a co-commission with CGP London and HOME, Manchester. CAPSID’s London debut spans both galleries at CGP London - The Gallery and Dilston Grove - from 17 May until 8 July 2018 then will be reimagined at HOME, Manchester from 10 November until 6 January 2019. Admission is free.
