Sep 20 - Nov 11, 2017
The Showroom presents 'Everything we see could also be otherwise (My sweet little lamb)', a contextualisation and rethinking of the Vienna-based Kontakt Art Collection. The exhibition forms the epilogue of a long-term project which originally took place in Zagreb from November 2016 to May 2017, curated by What, How & for Whom/WHW in collaboration with Kathrin Rhomberg.
 
Taking selected works from the Collection as its point of departure, including seminal pieces by some of the most prominent artists from Central, Eastern and South-East Europe since the 1960s, including historical works by Mladen Stilinović, Július Koller, Valie Export, Geta Brătescu, Edward Krasiński and Sanja Iveković, the exhibition stages an interplay between these and other historical, contemporary and newly produced works that interpret and critically examine the collection.

THERE’S SOMETHING IN THE CONVERSATION...
Mar 28 - May 5, 2018
Private view Tue Mar 27 6.30pm - 8.30pm
'There’s something in the conversation that is more interesting than the finality of (a title)' presents a combination of newly commissioned work and a programme of events by artists Adam Farah, Onyeka Igwe, Jamila Johnson-Small, Jade Montserrat, Ima-Abasi Okon, Raju Rage, Daniella Valz Gen and Alberta Whittle.
 
'There’s something in the conversation that is more interesting than the finality of (a title)' grew out of Holding Space, an artist associates programme which convened at The Showroom during 2017. Holding Space was initiated by Teresa Cisneros, supported by an Arts Council England Change Maker’s grant.
