Yulia Iosilzon participates in a digital Instagram exhibition called "When Shit Hits the Fan" organized by Guts Gallery.
Gallery openings have been affected by the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Many art-related events, including Guts Gallery's have either been cancelled or postponed, causing a large economic impact on artists and smaller galleries. As the gallery claimed, wanting to challenge this situation and to support underrepresented contemporary voices into action, Guts Gallery decided to create a digital Instagram exhibition.
A mass part of all exhibiting works happened yesterday -26 March- at 6 pm on the Guts Gallery Instagram account. Instead of being in the physical space, the gallery through this private view gives the chance to the public, by posting all artworks simultaneously, to like, comment, share and view the artwork in one time and space.
Each artist will vote for three fellow exhibiting artists they think deserve to win The Guts Gallery Prize. The artist with the most votes will win a solo exhibition at The Room Upstairs Gallery in London later this year. Through this method the gallery aims to allow open collaborations between the artists as they vote to support each other's practices. The winner will be announced on the 16th of April.
