PROJECT SPACE : ANASTASIA MINA, THETA
Sep 10 - Dec 15, 2018
Theta is a commission of new prints and drawings by London-based Cypriot artist, Anastasia Mina. This body of work continues Mina’s investigation into the historical and political implications of marginalised narratives; a practice informed by the politicised region of the artist’s country of birth. Working in drawing and printmaking, she re-edits and obscures found photographic images in an effort to distance the image from the event it represents. Through her treatment of this material, Mina highlights the subjectivities at play within the photographic document and considers possibilities for new readings of its visual content.

SURVEY
Oct 3 - Dec 16, 2018
Chris Alton, Simeon Barclay, Hazel Brill, Flo Brooks, Emma Cousin, Joe Fletcher Orr, Tom Goddard, Ashley Holmes, Lindsey Mendick, Nicole Morris, Milly Peck, Anna Raczynski, Will Sheridan Jr, Rae-Yen Song and Frank Wasser.
A major new survey exhibition presenting new works by 15 early-career artists from across the UK. Survey is the largest review of contemporary art practice in Jerwood Visual Art’s 12 years of programming, spanning a breadth of disciplines. Marking a departure from Jerwood Charitable Foundation’s 17 years of support of the Jerwood Drawing Prize, and coinciding with Frieze London 2018, Survey takes a non-institutional approach to selection with 35 mid-career artists – including Ryan Gander, Andy Holden and Rachel Maclean – nominating the most promising new UK artists working today.

ASHLEY HOLMES, GOOD TO US
Oct 4, 2018 7:00pm - 9:00pm talk/event
Good To Us is a new live presentation by Ashley Holmes. This work has developed out of a written adaptation of Dope, a poem by American writer, music critic and poet, Amiri Baraka (previously known as LeRoi Jones and Imamu Amear Baraka). In the original work, Baraka takes on the persona of a Black preacher giving a sermon. In an erratic, humorous and satirical manner, the speaker convinces his audience to believe that it ‘musta been the devil” responsible for all the problems confronting Black people throughout history’. The sermon acts as a parody, and is referenced by Holmes as a way to consider how it is possible to confront voyeuristic cultures within ‘raciology’ – a discourse that assumes certain stereotypes, prejudices, images and identities. Good To Us, presented as a performance consisting of new moving-image works and an audio soundtrack, has been informed by Holmes’ recent research that attempts to dissect the complexities of what occurs when a collective ideology is challenged and/or put at risk.

FRANK WASSER, THE SLOW ABROGATION OF THE...
Nov 19, 2018 7:00pm - 8:30pm talk/event
Young and old, noting else ever. What happened here? Slower than…
 
The slow abrogation of the… is a new performance by Frank Wasser. Two subjects displaced by their own constructed subjectivity confront the objectivity of time and architecture through a dialogue of slow choreography, listening and an acknowledgment of a failed common language. The subjects directly address the act of being observed in a place of historical observation, the exhibition.
 
This event has been commissioned for Survey.
It is free to attend. Booking is required via Eventbrite.
