Alternative futures + decentralised communities in There will be nothing left to suck at Bank Space Gallery, May 11 – May 26

10 May 2017

The There will be nothing left to suck group exhibition is on at London’s Bank Space Gallery, opening May 11 and running to May 26.

Curated by the Dow Collective, the show includes work by Catherine Biocca, Byzantia Harlow, Pil and Galia Kollectiv, Katharina Ludwig, Luke Overin and Sophie Rogers.

The exhibition uses the question “What if…?” as a starting point to imagine “alternative- unexpected- futures” and unpick the development of centralised power structures in relation to “decentralised communities.” Through video, performance, text and installation, the artists will explore concepts of the renewed and the destroyed.

The Sorry About Last Night group exhibition is on at Sheffield’s The Washington Pub, opening May 6 and running to June 6.

The multidisciplinary show celebrates work birthed from bad life choices, and is placed between the shiny optimism of getting ready before a night out and the consequent hangover the next day. In sharing truths and slurring emotions the evening seeks what the press release calls “drunken  inspirations, drinking to forget, passionate pub debates, pointless fights with friends, loss of inhibitions, misguided decisions, hungover regrets, next day apologies, and one too many Jaegerbombs [sic].”

A confessional performance/public meltdown by Self Esteem (Rebecca Taylor of Slow Club) will commence at on the evening of May 6, with Karaoke running into the late hours.
