David Blandy (b. 1976) is a contemporary artist based in Brighton and London who uses video, performance, digital technology, animation and comics to investigate the popular culture that surrounds us. He has exhibited widely, including shows at The Baltic, Gateshead; theLiverpool Biennial; Turner Contemporary, Margate; Spike Island, Bristol; and Platform China Project Space, Beijing. His work is distributed by LUX, and he is represented by Seventeen Gallery in London.

Lucy Clout (born 1980, Leeds, based London) gained her MA Sculpture at Royal College of Art, London (2009), and her BA Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, London (2004). Recent solo shows include Limoncello, London (2011); International Project Space, Birmingham (2010); Associates, London; 'The Way in Which it Landed', Tate Britain, London; and 'Associates in New York', Phillips de Pury & Co., New York (all 2008).

Alan Currall (b. 1964) has exhibited widely in group and solo shows at galleries including the Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne, Hayward Gallery, London, Malmö Konsthall, Malmö and Stills Gallery, Edinburgh. In 2002 he exhibited at the Jerwood Gallery as part of the Artist Platform series and was nominated for the Beck's Futures Prize in 2003.

Josephine Flynn (B. 1975, Leigh, based in Leeds) gained her MA Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam University (2006), BA Fine Art at Leeds Metropolitan University (1998). Recent solo exhibitions include The International 3, Manchester; Axel Lapp, Berlin and Associates, London.

Gelitin is comprised of four artists. They met first in 1978 when they all attended a summer camp. They have been playing and working together. In 1993 they began exhibiting internationally and have since exhibited widely with recent solo shows including Greene Naftali Gallery, New York; Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, Paris and Kunsthalle Krems, Austria.

In the years that Internet has been active as a collective, it has written, developed and produced numerous performances and videos, working collaboratively with different people. The group is flexible, which means that not all of the members participate in the same way every time. Internet's performances involve candid conversations that are usually scripted and often require audience members to help out, to keep the show going to the end. Members include Diego Chamy and Siân Robinson Davies.


Project supported by Creative Scotland.




Rhubaba will soon announce the date of Semi-nauts - an afternoon of talks and performances addressing the meeting points between the recent exhibition, We are all U.F.O.-nauts and current show, Semi. Speakers, including practitioners and academics from various fields, will broadly address art's ability to alter systems of communication and ideas surrounding optimism and failure in contemporary art. Further information will be available on our website soon and an email invite will be sent as soon as more details are available.


Dates will shortly be announced for our first ever members exhibition with a guest selector also to be announced very soon. For more information on our membership schemes please see our website<>.
