I should define as Baroque that style which deliberately exhausts (or tries to exhaust) all its possibilities and which borders on its own parody… I would say that the final stage of all styles is baroque when that style only too obviously exhibits or overdoes its own tricks.
A Universal History of Infamy - Jorge Luis Borges, preface to 1954 edition

The sublime and the ridiculous, the grotesque and the beautiful, the overdone and the overflow, melodrama and ecstasy, a passionate taste for life and its sensations, excessive complexity, contorted and convoluted, showing us a world where matter is continuously in motion.

Baroque My World, brings together thirteen London-based artists, whose work encompasses a range of media and reflects upon various aspects of the Baroque. It is the inaugural show at Transition Gallery’s new premises and is curated by Mimei Thompson
