Status Quo Private View | Holly Willats: No Quick Fix

27 April 2017 | 7pm – 9pm

StudioRCA, Unit F1, 1 Riverlight Quay, Nine Elms Lane, London SW8 5AU


For Status Quo, eleven artists made a GIF in relation to a statement they wish to spread – by voicing an opinion or simply making a moving image. The final work was showcased through the Art Licks Weekend Digital platform in 2016. StudioRCA Riverlight will now host showreels of the works, running for 24 hours a day. The GIFs are available to share on social media at

This project is part of A- - -Z's ongoing research project around the display and dissemination of artwork and adds to the morphic and viral forms of the platform. A- - -Z is an exploratory curatorial platform produced by Anne Duffau. Taking the formula of the alphabet, A- - -Z uses words related to the idea of Entropy as a starting point to map out and test various unstable potentials. One letter, one experiment, twenty six times
