“ ...and this again is typifying the end of an empire. Where things were so great, we have this last ‘umpth’ of momentum that we used to be great, and we felt great, and we don’t feel it anymore, that everyone is but searching for it.”
-David Morgan, Four Horsemen

“We live in a strange time.”
-Adam Curtis, HyperNormalisation

It is a radical notion to subsist as an artist. The artists’ mission is to advance the cause of new ways of thinking and put more “light” in the world. In a society that rewards consumerism, it is important to critically examine the role of the artist as emerging participants in the grand exchange of ideas.

Make It Nice Again is an attempt to reconcile the realities of our society, with a desire to focus on our current socio-political climate. As a response to the confusion and unpredictability of our times, the artists’ strive to recapture a sense of nostalgia and stability, examining the past as a means to create a dialog to help navigate the future.

This exhibition will address the uncertainty as we work towards a better outlook. To this end the artists will engage in mutual discourse, concentrating on a proliferation of creative ideas that form the basis for alternative perspectives.
