For the coming six weeks croy nielsen will be hosting Flaca: an independent project space situated in London's East End. Founded in 2003 by artist Tom Humphreys, Flaca has been the platform for a comprehensive program of group- and solo exhibitions featuring both London-based and international artists. The projects include publications, such as the Flaca Book-series, and often the exhibitions are developed in collaboration with other curators. The program is mainly concentrated on young artists, but in 2005 Flaca presented the first UK retrospective of the legendary American artist Prophet Royal Robertson (1936-1997).

For the show at croy nielsen, Tom Humphreys has invited four artists under the title 'One Size Youth', which is the description found on the size label inside brightly coloured stretchy Jamaica-style T-shirts. Read out of context it has an inference of universality and shared ideology. Loosely and openly developed, the exhibition was born from the question of how one might form a youth movement, and it brings together four artists that share certain sensibilities and direction.
