Curated by Alissa Kleist
17 February – 1 April 2017
Opening Friday 17 February, 7pm.
Places where men go to die, commences 8pm.
A new collective performance choreographed by Mitch Conlon.
You and I is a group exhibition curated by Alissa Kleist that includes new and existing video, sculptural, installation, and event-based works by Rhona Byrne, Mitch Conlon, Harrell Fletcher, IM Heung-soon, and J Ross & Sons. The exhibition examines the social, political and formal functions of art at a time when individualisation, capitalism, neoliberalism, and privatisation – which benefit few, whilst disadvantaging and alienating many others – hegemonise our society. You and I features artworks that emphasise the role the artist in making visible and questioning these systems, and propose counterstrategies to address their effects. More details.
A Free bus will run on the evening of the opening: Leaves Belfast from Golden Thread Gallery at 6.45pm and returns from Portadown at 9:30pm
Curator’s talk: 25 March, 12-1pm
You and I guest curator Alissa Kleist will give a tour of the exhibition and an insight into the exhibiting artists’ practices. This is a free event and everyone is welcome to attend.
Speed Moaning event: 25 March, 2-4pm
Artist Rhona Byrne invites you to discuss the everyday things that bother you and find new ways of expressing them through a series of collective moaning exercises. This is a free event and everyone is welcome to attend.
