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.

RACHAL BRADLEY : INTERLOCUTOR
Jan 25 - Mar 18, 2018
Private view Wed Jan 24 6.30pm - 8.30pm
Gasworks presents Interlocutor, a major new commission by Rachal Bradley, produced by Gasworks through the Freelands Artist Programme, and in partnership with Kunstlerhaus Stuttgart.
 
Bradley is interested in organisational structures, processes and relations, how these shape meaning and code the relations between individuals and society. This includes, but is not limited to, art and the contexts in which it is presented and produced, and an attention to what art does as well as what art means.
 
Interlocutor begins from the privacy of the artist’s studio at Gasworks, occupied during her residency from 3 July to 18 September this year. Spiralling outward from here, like an IUD, it becomes more public in stages, from private, semi-public and public events, to critical writing, a solo exhibition and an intervention on the fašades of the Gasworks building, the organisation’s most public aspect.
