The Impressionists brings together a group of artists who use humour in their practice under the guise of a fake collective called S.O.F.A. (Society Of Funny Artists). Each artist will submit a work which aims to act as an impression of another artist's work who is also in the collective. The artists in the show will aim to make a work as if they were this artist, rather than mimicking an already existing work. The result will be an exhibition of ‘impressions’, the artist’s actual work will leak into the exhibition by way of parody. The exhibited works will be as lacking in authenticity as the fake collective which frames them. Each artist will contribute a statement for the S.O.F.A. manifesto which will accompany the exhibition. The Impressionists aims to question the aesthetic of authority and legitimacy created by the formation of artist collectives while also providing insight by way of caricature into each artist's individual practice. The Impressionists aims to draw links between modernist aims of depicting ‘essence’ to comedic practices of caricature and parody.
