Coleman Projects is delighted to announce the first exhibition of the 2023 programme, Just Like That, curated by Theo Ellison. This exhibition explores that strange disconnect and digs into the role of humour within art; the relationship between irony and sincerity, the influence of comedy on video and performance art, the commonalities and differences between humour and art-world humour, and how it operates within and between self-contained artworks.

Monochrome brings together eight contemporary artists who explore the complexities of simply working in a single colour. The avant-garde history of this Modernist idiom – from Malevich to Klein and Mary Martin – can be traced through the evidence here of their very different practices. As a group, they represent a riot of material approaches in a range of colours, textures, dimensions and tonal spectra: from the slick surface of ceramics to bold sculptural puzzles, dynamic object-relief and the subtle granular weft of the canvas.

This year Rachel Lumsden will be in situ, developing a body of paintings informed by a curious mix of imagery relating to world events and everyday occurences. Sifting through the visual information at her disposal, Lumsden reveals the follies and the virtues of human situations and their particular moment in media and cultural history.

Coleman Project Space is delighted to become the temporary London home of ‘Signifiance: Painting Beyond Borders’, curated by John Bunker and Michael Stubbs. This group exhibition of diverse approaches in British painting was originally conceived for The Cornerstone Gallery, Liverpool Hope University. It reflects the myriad ways artists are currently pushing at and exploring the boundaries between old and new media; our Modernist understanding of painting as a practice and the contemporary critical discourse that attempts to define it, or break it down.
