A Vague Anxiety addresses concerns of Generation Y, from political points of departure such as borders, housing, and the environment; to the manifestly personal such as mental health, hook-up culture, gender identity and precarity. These issues are pressing but have no simple solutions. Such themes are addressed through diverse means from traditional painting, sculpture and photography; through to installation, social media, workshops, dance, performance and club culture. This exhibition neither poses questions nor presents solutions but reflects on our present tensions.
