Jul 20 - Oct 14, 2018
Tai Shani presents her first major solo exhibition in a public gallery, presenting the culmination of her ongoing project Dark Continent, which includes an immersive installation in The Tetley’s atrium, film works, posters and a selection of artworks drawn together by Shani.
 
Over the last four years Tai Shani has been developing a body of work that takes Christine de Pizan’s 1405 proto-feminist text The Book of the City of Ladies as its starting point. Pizan created an allegorical city of notable women drawn from a medieval conception of history, where fact, fiction and myth are blurred. Characters from fiction live side by side with female historical figures, collectively making an early case for gender equality.

HOLLY HENDRY: CENOTAPH
Jun 21 - Oct 13, 2019
As part of the Liverpool Biennial touring programme, Holly Hendry's large-scale public artwork Cenotaph, inspired by the artist's interest in the underground architecture of cities, will find a new home outside The Tetley. Hendry's sculptures look at the back of things, as she says "open cracks where you see the gooey insides". The artist is interested in the anatomy of the architecture of our surroundings and the innards and plumbing of the city itself.
