Acting Truthfully… @ Tenderpixel, Nov 13 – Dec 20

10 November 2014

Tenderpixel Gallery is hosting a new group exhibition, titled Acting Truthfully Under the Circumstances* and running at their London space from November 13 to December 20.

The exhibition – which features seven international artists and artist pairs, including Feiko Beckers, Anja Kirschner and David Panos, Jacopo Miliani, Timothy Ivison and Julia Tcharfas, and Rehana Zaman – commences with a private view on November 13 accompanied by a performance by Beckers.

The exhibition itself takes its name from a video installation by Kirschner and Panos exploring acting exercises developed by actor (and acting teacher) Sanford Meisner, hinting to the performative “post-Brechtian and postdramatic theatre” aspect of the show. Where Beckers’s performance stages personal stories of problematic human relationships in The Exact Opposite of the Exact Opposite, Miliani’s series Folding Characters combines found footage of scene photographs from plays with a collection of folded fabrics, and Ivison and Tcharfas, in turn, created a reading room and event space after Cecil Court’s antique bookshops.

Marina Vishmidt & Danny Hayward @ Hollybush Gardens, Oct 9

8 October 2014

Marina Vishmidt and Danny Hayward are taking over London’s Hollybush Gardens for a talk and reading on October 9.

The event takes place alongside and as part of David Panos’s latest exhibition, The Dark Pool, which has been running at the gallery from September 11 until October 12, and Vishmidt and Hayward arrive at its tail-end to shed light, from their disparate perspectives, on the subject.

London-based writer, editor and critic Vishmidt – author of Speculation as a Mode of Production and presenter at the recent Re-materialising Feminism collaborative project, will be giving a presentation titled ‘Dither and Ooze: The Dialectics of Matter at a Standstill’, exploring the relationship (or crisis) between art and capital and the speculative movement of contemporary art. Hayward, alternately, will read from his recently published collection, People, a compendium of poems, essays and drama.

There is currently no event page for this. **
