THE FUTURE IS CERTAIN; IT'S THE PAST WHICH IS UNPREDICTABLE
Jun 23 - Aug 20, 2017
A group show on writing and rewriting history.
 
"The future is certain", according to an old Soviet joke. "It's the past which is unpredictable."
 
This exhibition reflects on the ways history is written and the inevitability with which the past reasserts itself in the future.
 
Bringing together works from nine artists and collectives, The Future is Certain is an economy of ideas and artworks as well as historical facts and records that refuse to disappear on their own.
 
Participating artists and collectives: Felix Kalmenson, Jonas Mekas (in video conversation with Johnston Sheard and Justė Kostikovaitė), Deimantas Narkevičius, Emily Newman, Rather Than Happiness, Jura Shust, Slavs and Tatars, Emilija ¦karnulytė, Juan Pablo Villegas

Feb 23 - Apr 15, 2018
Private view Thu Feb 22 6pm - 2am
Post-Soviet Visions: image and identity in the new Eastern Europe is a group show of photography from the New East.
 
The exhibition explores new visual representations of lifestyle and landscape in Eastern Europe.
 
The exhibition gathers the work of a young generation of artists rising to prominence a quarter century after the end of Communism.
 
The photographers in Post-Soviet Visions come from Georgia, Germany, Latvia, Poland, Russia, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.
 
Instead of old binaries of East vs West, socialist vs capitalist, their images capture a generation shaped by issues that are personal rather than the political; by questions of sexuality, gender and style.
 
Participating artists: Armen Parsadanov, David Meskhi, Dima Komarov, Genia Volkov, Grigor Devejiev, Hassan Kurbanbaev, Ieva Raudsepa, Jędrzej Franek, Masha Demianova, Michal Korta, Patrick Bienert and Max von Gumppenberg, Paulina Korobkiewicz, Pavel Milyakov
