GROUP SHOW : LA MOVIDA
Apr 14 - Jul 17, 2017
The exhibition sets new commissions reacting to the movement alongside existing international works that explore major conceits of La Movida less directly including freedom & excess, hedonism and trangression. Forty years since the transition to democracy, the exhibition and its related films, performance and literature present a re-imaging of a movement with a strong contemporary artistic and socio-political resonance today.

Apr 21 - Jun 10, 2018
The film will chart the progress of Henderson, alongside producer Olivier Marboeuf, devising a performance for the forthcoming Ghetto Biennial with a collective of eight young Haitian actors, poets and slammers. Taking as a point of departure the play Monsieur Toussaint by Édouard Glissant, Overtures explores the complexities of both translation (from French to Créole) and fiction when looking at Haitian history.
