continuous | exhibition
Fordham is an art initiative from London, operated by Man Somerlinck. Somerlinck is concerned with a certain, rather specific presentation of a question about the position of contemporary art in society. The projects that Somerlinck realizes with Fordham in London, are characterized by an intuitive insight in a dynamic fragment of the London art scene, a fragment that is fascinating, yet not connected to an institutionally confirmed circuit. The fact that the activities of Fordham are taking place in London, does not mean that Somerlinck only works with British artists. London is a metropolis, where artists of all nationalities live and work, and Fordham also offers a cross-section of this aspect.
