NEW Wheat, NEW Mud, NEW Machine is a major exhibition of new works by Glasgow based artists’ collaborative group Poster Club, which stems from their participation in Cooper Gallery’s international project CURRENT: Contemporary Art from Scotland at Shanghai Himalayas Art Museum in summer 2015. The title of the exhibition references the material properties of the objects represented in the exhibition, it also indicates the reflections and annotations that have arisen since the group’s brief encounter with Shanghai.
Printing slogans and symbols onto posters, garments and sculpture, Poster Club position printmaking as an experimental site for collaborative practice. Inscribed with open-ended questions and unlikely conjunctions, Poster Club continually cite, revisit and reappraise their own artworks and utterances to produce a humorous 'institutional self-critique’. Always evading intentional and ‘objective’ statements, NEW Wheat, NEW Mud, NEW Machine is an opening into an elusive play of visual and textual possibility.
