AWAY, COMPLETELY : DENIGRATE (INTRODUCTION)
Click to enlarge Jun 20, 2019 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Halima Haruna, Ashley Holmes and Ebun Sodipo.
Curated by Languid Hands.
‘Did we surprise our teachers who had niggling doubts about the picayune brains of small black children who reminded them of clean pickaninnies on a box of laundry soap? How muddy is the Mississippi compared to the third-longest river of the darkest continent? In the land of the Ibo, the Hausa, and the Yoruba, what is the price per barrel of nigrescence? Though slaves, who were wealth, survived on niggardly provisions, should inheritors of wealth fault the poor enigma for lacking a dictionary? Does the mayor demand a recount of every bullet or does city hall simply neglect the black alderman's district? If I disagree with your beliefs, do you chalk it up to my negligible powers of discrimination, supposing I'm just trifling and not worth considering? Does my niggling concern with trivial matters negate my ability to negotiate in good faith? Though Maroons, who were unruly Africans, not loose horses or lazy sailors, were called renegades in Spanish, will I turn any blacker if I renege on this deal?’

MARY REID KELLEY & PATRICK KELLEY IN CONVERSATION WITH HARRY THORNE
Click to enlarge Artist Talk Jul 6, 2019 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley are joined in conversation by writer, editor and critic Harry Thorne to discuss their new commission Rand/Goop at Studio Voltaire.
—-
"… Mary and Patrick’s films are post-mortem parodies: disjointed variations on a theme that sees repetition deployed at an ironic remove. Under a metahistorical guise, they pounce upon the various hidden tyrannies of the contemporary age and, in making them equal parts legible and ludicrous, unveil their deep-set problematics. Call it Brechtian distancing with a burlesque twang."
– Harry Thorne, ‘The Burlesque Worlds of Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley’, Frieze, 2018.
Harry Thorne is a writer and editor based in London, UK. He is associate editor of Frieze and a contributing editor of The White Review. In 2017, he was shortlisted for the International Awards for Art Criticism.
