The Crab Walk group exhibition is on at Sunderland’s Northern Gallery for Contemporary (NGCA), opening October 29 and running to February 20, 2016.
The show is curated by Ned McConnell and George Vasey and aims to present a variety of curatorial methods and historiographical approaches to space and place. Plymouth’s KARST hosted the original incarnation of the show, but in line with a polyphonic approach to history, this iteration contains new artists and commissions, alongside a brand new title.
New work as part of Crab Walk will draw on a range of media, including sculpture, audio, film and painting in conversation with Kazimir Malevich’s ‘Black Square‘ (1915). The tension between object and image, place and history will inform the works on show.
The list of featured artists includes Nicolas Deshayes, Alex Dordoy, Jennifer Douglas, Patrick Hough, Philomene Pirecki, Marie Toseland, Sally Troughton, Rosalind McLachlan and design work by Tom Merrell.
