Chisenhale Gallery supports #NotSurprised, a campaign calling for the end of silence over sexual harassment in the art world. Over 2000 artists, arts administrators, assistants, curators, directors, editors, educators, gallerists, interns, scholars, students, writers and more have so far supported the open letter, which can be read and signed here.  


Please join us on Thursday 2 November, 7pm, for a conversation between Ciarán Finlayson, writer and member of the political education collective Hic Rosa, and Marina Vishmidt, Lecturer in Culture Industry at Goldsmiths, University of London. This event is free to attend but booking is recommended. To reserve a place please visit our Eventbrite page here.  

Hannah Black’s exhibition events have been devised in collaboration with the artist, and include a series of conversations in which participants have been invited to discuss a situation of their choice. For more information on all events, please click here. To listen again to Larne Abse Gogarty, art historian and critic, and Hannah Proctor, cultural historian and theorist, discuss the situation of the dream in their recent conversation, please click here.  

To accompany her exhibition a reading list of texts, books and articles has been compiled in collaboration with Hannah Black. This resource expands on ideas raised through Black’s new commission. Included is previous writing by Black, such as her publications Dark Pool Party (DOMINICA/Arcadia Missa, 2016) and Life, with Juliana Huxtable, (mumok, 2017); essays and books that provide reference and further context to the work; and a selection of writings by contributors to The Situation (2017).
