PETER ADLER: A PERSONAL ASAFO HISTORY
Click to enlarge Curators Talk Sep 07, 2019 4:00pm
Peter Adler will join The Gallery of Everything on 7 September for a talk on his 30 year history with this material. This is a rare opportunity to discover more about these important cultural artefacts from one of the world’s leading authorities on the subject.
In the 17th century, on the coast of what is now modern-day Ghana, the Fante people developed a new tradition, commencing a visual practice today considered as one of the most vivid and celebratory of 20th century Africa.
These are Asafo flags: asa meaning war, fo meaning people. They are symbols and allegories, conjured from folk tales and proverbs across the region.
Asafo flags continue to inspire many of the world’s artists, curators and designers. The works on display feature vintage flags from a number of key collections, including that of author and enthusiast, Peter Adler.

JERWOOD STAGING SERIES 2019: AJ STOCKWELL
Click to enlarge Sep 11, 2019 7:00pm - 9:00pm
At the point where the body and the rock meet, where the corporeal and the lithic intertwine, this thin space is where it can be found.
 
in the midst of her elemental composition* is an evening exploring interconnections between the human and the lithic, with a focus on the artist’s own body and its geological heritage in the Western Isles. Considering the thin space between these bodies and the points at which they meet, AJ Stockwell’s research concentrates on how this relationship can be articulated and in what tongue. Drawing upon a text written and translated from Michel Serres as a starting point, this new body of research is presented through sculpture, performance and audio. Water is central to connecting the corporeal with the lithic and as part of the performance the audience are invited to drink together from water collected in North Uist by the artist, which has filtered through the ancient rock body of this land. As the sun sets the performance progresses into a deep listening environment, where the audio piece is presented.
This is free to attend. Booking is required via Eventbrite. www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/jerwood-staging-series-2019-aj-stockwell-in-the-midst-of-her-elemental-composition-tickets-66203062141

Click to enlarge Sep 14, 2019 2:00pm - 6:00pm
Birmingham-based curator Seán Elder brings together moving image and object-based artworks that depict and support moments of communal imagination, action, rest and thought.
 
Within the gallery spaces, Aberdeen-based artist Kirsty Russell presents opportunities for listening, reading, and spending time together, accompanied by a screening of ‘Desires Will Leave The House And Take To The Streets’ (1998). The film depicts a process of communities and networks critiquing, desiring and imagining a new public space for St Pauli, Hamburg, which resulted in the establishment of Park Fiction. This and other films will be screened alongside the new work presented by Kirsty Russell, which speak to a preoccupation with inhabiting spaces with support, invitation and maintenance.

EXPOSURE: OLIVIA SUDJIC
Click to enlarge Talk Oct 8, 2019 7:00pm - 8:00pm
With its first year of exhibition-making drawing to a close, Goldsmiths CCA pauses to reflect on a number of women artists’ practices it has hosted and the contemporary feminist discourse it has engaged in. Within this context we invite writer Olivia Sudjic to read from her book Exposure (2018), in which she explores the trope of anxiety within female creativity. The essay positions anxiety – a state of thin-skinnedness and hypervigilance – as holding the potential for an imaginary, or point from which to create. Moving through and alongside her ‘talisman’ authors; Rachel Cusk, Clarice Lispector, Maggie Nelson, Chris Kraus and Elena Ferrante, she documents her own struggles with anxiety, and frames them within a feminist critique of the reception of female authors. Particularly resonant are her illuminating discussions of the ways in which narratives concerning the internal life of women (a politicised position given the lack of public space afforded to women) are often assumed to be autobiographical and negatively positioned as ‘diaristic’, a dismissive charge rarely levelled at male authors. The event will also explore the impact of technology on subjectivity, drawing on her first novel Sympathy (2017).
