Cell Project Space is hosting a three-day interactive event celebrating the work of Beatriz Olabarrieta titled Shifty Show (While Undoing Shoelaces) that will run at their London space from July 24 to July 27.

The event comes as the closing of Olabarrieta’s month-long stay at the gallery, during which she was developing a presentation of new sculpture and video that comprises her Shifty Show exhibition.

Following a private viewing on July 24, the event will explore the inherent potential of raw materials removed from the functionality imposed on them.
