BY THE LAWS OF CHANCE

Curated by Andrea Bell

10th Dec 2016 - 19th Feb 2017

The definition of chance varies according to philosophical, religious, mystical, and cultural contexts. Some attribute it to strength in faith or superstitious belief, while others look for answers in logic, the laws of physics or mathematical probability. In this exhibition, historical photography and decorative arts sit alongside contemporary investigations into the possibilities of experiencing chance events through random social exchanges, the stock market, and gambling. Includes work by Oscar Enberg, Nicholas Mangan, Tim Wagg, Erica van Zon, John Ward Knox, Joseph Perry and Ryuzo Nishida, curated by Andrea Bell.
