Thank you also to everyone who joined us last Thursday for João Florêncio’s talk, which drew from Alex Baczynski-Jenkins’ new work to explore the political and aesthetic value of refusing a "poetics of spectacularity" when engaging with illness. Images by Manuela Barczewski.
Chisenhale programme alumna Leah Clements visited Raines Foundation Secondary School last week as part of our Chisenhale Gallery Presents programme- a series of artist presentations at local secondary schools. Clements gave a presentation on her practice, including Beside, a work commissioned by Chisenhale Gallery and presented as part of our 21st Century programme in December 2015. The presentation was followed by a workshop with the students. To listen to Clements’ Online Commission for Chisenhale Gallery’s website please click here.
