Anarchic sexual desires…@ P/N, Jul 10 – Aug 10

8 July 2015

Project/Number launches a new group exhibition titled Anarchic sexual desires of plain unmarried schoolteachers, running at their London space from July 10 to August 10.

The exhibition, curated by writer/editor/curator Chris McCormack, brings together the works of six different artists—Charlotte Prodger, Rosa von Praunheim, Sofia Hultén, Terence McCormack, Irene Revell presenting HOMOCULT, and Joyce Wieland—as well as a publication featuring writing from close to twenty different writers, including I Love Dick‘s Chris Kraus and Jaki Irvine.

The theme of the exhibition and publication (which take their name from a line by Elizabeth Hardwick) continues what contributor Bruce Boone began in his short text, My Walk with Bob, formative in defining New Narrative writing—its characteristic wandering prose, and its “queer aesthetic of dissident erotic and emotional possibilities”.

See the P/N website for details. **

Nematode @ Wysing Arts Centre, May 9

7 May 2015

For the final event of their residencies, artists Kit Craig, Joey Holder and Takeshi Shiomitsu are presenting Nematode at Cambridge’s Wysing Arts Centre on May 9.

Wrapping up their respective residencies at the space (along with Electra (Irene Revell), Heather Phillipson, Paul Purgas, and Erica Scourti), the three artists have joined forces to devise a flexible framework—a kind of fragmented environment layered with film, text, spoken word, object, video and imagery—through which they present their unfinished ideas and works-in-progress, giving insight into the processes that underlaid their residencies at the arts centre.

The event of May 9 will also invite Electra’s Irene Revell, who will present films by experimental feminist film-maker Sandra Lahire, as well as contributions from Canadian artist, writer and educator Emily Rosamond and the writer, critic and curator, Chris Fite-Wassilak.

See the exhibition page for details. **
