We all know what it’s like to live with the unspeakable.

Unspeakable has a lot to say. It shouts within us.

This exhibition is concerned with perceptions, emotions, experiences and ideas that can’t be contained, controlled, pinned or paired down by the weight of words. This, the first exhibition of The Something Collective , is an invitation to engage directly with the works on show, with their individual narratives and with the wider dialogue that emerges from their association.

Using a range of media, the artists from The Something Collective respond to acts, desires, structures and complexities that render us speechless.

The Something Collective


We are a group of practising London based artists who meet regularly to discuss and develop work.

Through a wide range of art practices including drawing, sculpture, painting, textiles and mixed media, we find we have something in common; we are interested in producing work that speaks of something that cannot be explained or fully articulated in words.

Through this process of sharing and discussion we have developed something to show. We do this in recognition and acknowledgement that it is the viewer who provides the vital something else
