Founded in 1979, October Gallery, in central London, exhibits innovative, contemporary art from around the world. For over 40 years, October Gallery has pioneered the development of the Transvangarde - the trans-cultural avant-garde.


October Gallery is pleased to host an exhibition of recent works by sixteen MA Photography students from the Royal College of Art. This dynamic group exhibition, All I Want Is Out Of Here, will include film, photography and installation.

The show’s title is a quote by the visual and literary artist William S. Burroughs, whose subversive and experimental approach has influenced the artists in this show. This generation of emerging artists has grown up with a daily context of worldwide economic and ecological uncertainty; the work in this show reflects their constant negotiation of this context through the rapidly-changing field of photography and film. The assembled polyphony of voices suggests a collage of ideas that aims to open up new junctures, affording a glimpse into approaches to contemporary photographic practice.

This exhibition offers a preview of next year’s RCA Fine Art graduates and unveils an array of concerns underlying their work including reassessing public and private histories, the body and humour, the archive, temporal complexities of urban living and its discordant relationship with the land. Such themes allow for experimentation, while questioning what it means to observe, catch or construct meaning in the 21st Century.

A limited edition publication of the artists’ work will be available at the Private View and throughout the exhibition.

Exhibiting artists include: Andrew Bruce, Beth Atkinson, Clare Bottomley, Elisabeth Molin, Geoff Bartholomew, Joanna Piotrowska, Julio Galeote, Louise Carreck, Madoka Furuhashi, Masayo Matsuda, Ozzy Yorulmaz, Patrick Hough, Philipp Dorl, Ryan Moule, Victoria Jenkins, Shengie Gao and Taus Makhacheva.
