The 2017 commissions programme comprises four new exhibitions by Alex Baczynski-Jenkins, Maeve Brennan, Luke Willis Thompson and Hannah Black. Through their work these artists investigate and challenge traditional forms of exhibition making, raise questions about the importance of cultural heritage, and explore care as a site of production. The artists also address broader debates surrounding the ethics of collaboration and the body as a site of political enquiry.
As part of the commissioning process, a series of discursive events is programmed in collaboration with each artist and runs throughout the duration of the exhibition. For more information on our events programme, please visit our events page.
The gallery has an award winning, 34-year history as one of London’s most innovative forums for contemporary art.
