Generating a queer space-time network with Transmissions from the Etherspace at La Casa Encendida, May 4 -28

1 May 2017

The Transmissions from the Etherspace project at Madrid’s La Casa Encendida begins May 4 and is running to the 28.

Curated by João Laia, the program includes a series of performances featuring Sophia Al-Maria, Nina Beier, Hicham Berrada, Joana Escoval, Celia Hempton, Shahryar Nashat, Andrew Norman Wilson, Eddie Peake, Jacolby Satterwhite, Pepo Salazar and Emily Wardill.

Referring to the event as ‘a data cloud that changes shape’, the performative experience brings together multiple layers and interconnections to epplore both tangible and intangible frictions, “generating a queer space-time network where streams of information converge and alchemical transformations take place.”

Flora, Fauna @ KINMAN, Feb 27 – Mar 30

27 February 2014

Group exhibition Flora, Fauna is showing at London’s KINMAN, opening February 27 and closing March 30.

Featuring Rebecca Ackroyd, Celia Hempton, Paul Kneale, Andrew Mealor, Hannah Perry, Neil Rumming and Jack Strange, there’s not much to go on in terms of an exhibition brief except for its title. So in terms of how each artist approaches these biological categorisations of animal versus plant life, you’ll have to go and see for yourself.

Read a recent interview with Paul Kneale and see the KINMAN gallery website for details. **
