(Doors Open 7pm)

Chisenhale Gallery presents The Last Tape, an evening event by Sheffield and London-based artist Haroon Mirza. This one-night performance brings together a sculptural and aural assemblage by Mirza and a spoken-word performance of unrealised Ian Curtis songs by cult musician and actor Richard ‘Kid’ Strange within a stage format borrowed from Samuel Beckett’s Krapp’s Last Tape.

Haroon Mirza (b. 1977, London) lives and works in London & Sheffield. Recent solo exhibitions include Anthemoessa at Mother’s Tankstation, Dublin (2010) and The Last Tape at Vivid, Birmingham. Recent group exhibitions include The British Art Show 7 (2010), Life: A User’s Manual, Art Sheffield (2010), The Sheffield Pavillion, 11th Istanbul Biennial (2009) and New Contemporaries 2008, The A Foundation, Liverpool, London (2008). Mirza has been shortlisted for the 2010 Northern Art Prize and has a solo exhibition at Lisson Gallery in February 2011.

Admission to the performance is free but booking is required. Please email mail@chisenhale.org.uk to reserve a place.

This event has developed from an initial exhibition by Haroon Mirza at VIVID, Birmingham in 2010 and is kindly supported by Lisson Gallery.
