ON HANNAH ARENDT: EIGHT PROPOSALS FOR EXHIBITION
Jan 1 - Dec 31, 2021
Looking to one of the most important thinkers of the post-war generation to confront some of the most pressing socio-political issues of our time. On Hannah Arendt will be organised around eight exhibitions that seek to explore the questions put forth in the eight chapters of Arendt’s 1968 publication Between Past and Future: Eight Exercises in Political Thought.
 
The entire programme will feature over 20 international artists, including Siah Armajani, Bracha L. Ettinger, Lili Dujourie, Peter Kennard, Vivienne Koorland, Everlyn Nicodemus, Marinella Senatore, Lerato Shadi and more.

ON HANNAH ARENDT: THE CONCEPT OF HISTORY
Mar 8 - Apr 10, 2021
'The Concept of History', a solo exhibition by Peter KENNARD (b. 1949, UK) highlights the artist's extraordinary contribution to politically informed art over the past 50 years. The exhibition will showcase three bodies of work: his little-known STOP paintings from the 1960-70s informed by events such as the Paris student riots, The Prague Spring and Vietnam War protests; his series of Pallets from the 1990s, with traces of human images and figures barely visible on battered wooden pallets; and a new series of works on paper 2020.

Apr 26 - May 22, 2021
The third exhibition in Richard Saltoun Gallery's year-long series of exhibitions inspired by Hannah Arendt explores the political philosopher's essay 'What is Authority' from her 1968 publication Between Past and Future, around which all shows in the programme are based.
 
The question of authority – who has it and how it is implemented – has never been more widely debated. For this exhibition, three artists, Lili DUJOURIE (b.1941, Belgium), Everlyn NICODEMUS (b. 1954, Tanzania) and Lerato SHADI (b. 1979, South Africa), uniquely address this rhetorical question, and in doing so, broaden our understanding of what it means to confront power.
 
Brazilian sound artist and musician Laima LEYTON also responds to Arendt's essay with a new sound piece commissioned by the gallery, live on our website from 26 April.
