FABIENNE AUDEOUD
Feb 10 - Mar 11, 2017

Can one say no to religious beliefs that hurt/kill people? No to ornamental torture? No to the renewed practice of crucifixions? No to post-truth “trumperies”? No to extreme rights threats? Can one say no – at all?
 
Fabienne Audéoud lives and works in Paris after graduating with an MA from Goldsmiths and a dozen years in London followed by residency at the Jan van Eyck in Maastricht.
 
Her interdisciplinary work embodies personal, and often feminist and political and performative involvements. Her videos, painting series and performances have been shown in many artist run spaces and institutions such as Modern Art Oxford, Milton Keynes Gallery, Tate Gallery, ICA (London), Petit Palais (Paris), Confort Moderne (Poitiers). She has also extensively collaborated with artist John Russell, including their last to date project for Bjarne Melgaard at Maccarone Gallery (NY)

Jan 20 - Mar 26, 2017
Lubaina Himid was a pioneer of the Black Arts Movement in Britain in the 1980s, which offered a forum for black artists exploring the social and political issues surrounding black history and identity.
 
Spike Island’s exhibition — a collaboration with Modern Art Oxford and Nottingham Contemporary — focuses on migration, labour and creativity, longstanding concerns for Himid. Anchored by Naming the Money (2004), a spectacular installation of 100 life-size, painted figures that has been shown only once before in its entirety, the presentation brings into dialogue major works from the past 25 years, honing in on Himid’s theatrical use of cut-outs, colour and pattern.

DORA GARCIA : THESE BOOKS WERE ALIVE; THEY SPOKE TO ME!
Feb 3 - Apr 23, 2017
An exhibition of printed matter and performance works by Barcelona-based artist Dora García. Her first institutional solo show in the UK, the exhibition coincides with the 20th PAGES International Contemporary Artists’ Book Fair in March.
García’s show will provide a retrospective look at her career-long production of book editions, book sculptures and the ongoing connection within her practice to popular literature, theatre and film. For These books were alive; they spoke to me! García will stage a new iteration of several performance works, some of which have never been performed in English or outside of Spain before.
‘These books were alive; they spoke to me,’ is a quote from François Truffaut’s 1966 dystopic cult film Fahrenheit 451 (based on Ray Bradbury’s novel of the same name). This literary reference opens up a framework for the exhibition and expanded programme, which features books about performance and performances about books.
