Andrew Bick co-curates "The Order of Things" at The Wilson, Cheltenham, UK, featuring works by Daniel Robert Hunziker and John Wood & Paul Harrison
The exhibition runs from 28 January – 5 March 2017, organised in partnership with The University of Gloucestershire
“The Order of Things” is a new exhibition co curated by von Bartha artist Andrew Bick, as well as Jonathan Parsons and Katie Pratt – whose works are also represented in the show. Participating in the exhibition are ten other artists including John Wood & Paul Harrison, Daniel Robert Hunziker, Rana Begum, Guy Bigland, Edith Dekyndt, AK Dolven, Adam Gillam, Paul Harrison & John Wood, Daniel Robert Hunziker, Maria Lalic and Neil Zakiewycz.
“The Order of Things” explores abstraction in contemporary practice, and the use of alternative mediums to cross the boundaries between art and science and social and political engagement. Taking painting as a departure point – the primary medium used by early 20th century abstract pioneers – the exhibition also celebrates the value of the tangible as opposed to the virtual. The resulting artworks span across sculpture, video and drawing.
The Wilson, Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum, is an award winning art gallery and museum. The gallery houses a permanent fine art and Arts and Crafts collection as well as a rotating exhibition programme across two gallery spaces. Opened in 2013, the new building was designed by architects Berman Guedes Stretton.

Later this year, November 2017, von Bartha, Basel will present an exhibition of works from Daniel Robert Hunziker (b. 1965 in Walenstadt, Switzerland).
