IMRAN PERRETTA : THE DESTRUCTORS
Sep 28 - Dec 8, 2019
'the destructors' is a solo exhibition and major new film commission by London-based artist Imran Perretta. Drawing on the artist’s own experience as a young man of Bangladeshi heritage, the film explores personal and collective experiences of marginalisation and oppression. Shot on location in Tower Hamlets, East London, it reconsiders the figure of alienated male youth, exploring the complexities of ‘coming of age’ for young Muslim men living in the UK.

ERIC BAUDELAIRE AND ALVIN CURRAN : WHEN THERE’S NO MORE MUSIC TO WRITE
Apr 25 - Jun 21, 2020
A two-person exhibition by artist and filmmaker Eric Baudelaire and composer Alvin Curran. Curated in collaboration with music historian Maxime Guitton, the exhibition includes a new film commission exploring how Curran’s life and work intersects with the radical political movements emerging in Italy, and around the world, during the 1970s. Presented in partnership with CRAC Occitanie and Bristol New Music, and supported by Fluxus Art Projects.

LUCY STEIN : WET ROOM
Apr 25 - Jun 21, 2020
The first major UK solo show and a new commission by artist Lucy Stein, comprising a new series of coffin-scale paintings, deities carved from soap, and a fully functioning, hand painted wet room. Building on a lasting engagement with goddess culture, witchcraft and idea of the ‘anima’, the exhibition is based on Stein’s research into the ancient, womb-like Neolithic passages unique to West Cornwall.
