Thank you to everyone who joined us for Shen Xin’s event 
Forms Escape: Prologue, as part of our 21st Century programme. Shen worked with three London-based practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism to examine what she regards as afflictions of contemporary capitalism’s relationship with power, specifically appropriation, objectification and exploitation. An online element of Shen’s commission will be available on Chisenhale Gallery’s website shortly. Photos of the event are by Hanna-Katrina Jedrosz. 
Thank you also to everyone who joined us last Saturday for a screening of Audre Lorde, The Berlin Years 1984–1992, a documentary by Dagmar Schultz, selected by Park McArthur. Lorde (1934-92) was as a radical feminist, writer and advocate for social justice and has been an important influence on McArthur's work.

Park McArthur's exhibition Poly, closed on Sunday. Thank you to everyone who visited the show. For recordings of the programme of events that accompanied the show, which are available online please click here
The gallery is now closed while we prepare for our next exhibition by Maria Eichhorn. 5 weeks, 25 days, 175 hours is a two-part work examining contemporary labour conditions, which opens with a one-day symposium, on Saturday 23 April, 11am to 5pm, exploring ideas raised by the project. Eichhorn’s commission is part of the third and final year of How to work together, a shared programme of contemporary art research and commissioning by Chisenhale Gallery, The Showroom and Studio Voltaire.
