Click to enlargeZACH BLAS : CONTRA-INTERNET
Sep 21 - Dec 10, 2017
Contra-Internet is the first institutional solo exhibition by London-based artist Zach Blas.
 
Built around a video installation, the exhibition confronts the transformation of the internet into an instrument for state oppression and accelerated capitalism. Inspired by theorist Paul B. Preciado’s 2002 Manifiesto Contrasexual, the exhibition unites feminist and queer perspectives with a hacker ethos, attempting to fracture the global dominance of 'the Internet' while speculating on alternative network infrastructures that activists are developing globally.
 
The exhibition is co-commissioned by Gasworks, London; Art in General, New York; and MU, Eindhoven. Supported by Creative Capital, Arts Council England and Gasworks Exhibitions Programme supporter Catherine Petitgas.

EVAN IFEKOYA
Jul 5 - Sep 2, 2018
The first solo exhibition in London and a major new commission by London-based artist Evan Ifekoya,whose recent works in film, performance and sound explore intimate and co-authored forms of knowledge production and the radical potential of spectacle. Ifekoya’s ongoing project A Score, A Groove, A Phantom (2015-) explores archives of blackness, sociality and inheritance as they diffract through queer nightlife and trauma. Drawing from their current research around Buddhist practice, speculative fiction and the echo as affective encounter, Ifekoya’s Gasworks commission will focus on polyvocality and the sculptural potential of sound.
