Tate's new international learning programme BP Art Exchange shares its first year of global participation projects. These explore democracy, communication and how we use gesture, touch and generative ideas to reach out to others across the globe. Video and photography seek to illuminate the participatory process and artwork born out of conversations between the UK, and India, Denmark, Mexico and Russia.
Michelle Williams Gamaker's films from the workshops in India and London with Central Saint Martins students feature in the Clore Screening Room, featuring a re-enactment of Lygia Clark's Viagem (Journey).
The Reach Out exhibition is open daily and continues until 26th April 2015
Mieke Bal and I are exhibiting a 5-screen video work: Precarity (2015) in the 1st Chapter: The Importance of Being a (Moving) Image at the National Gallery, Prague. The National Gallery is going to open in Trade Fair Palace a new long-term project of the Moving Image Department. The title refers to Mieke's reflection of semiotics and ontology of the image.
The first show is presenting works by Portuguese artists Mariana Calo and Francisco Queimadela, American artist Rachel Rose, French artist Aurelien Froment and Mieke Bal and Michelle Williams Gamaker. The Czech art scene is presented by works of Daniel Pitín and Roman Štětina.
The Moving Image Department is situated in a previously not used extraordinary space on the ground floor of Trade Fair Palace, redone for this purpose by the architectural concept of Austrian artist Josef Dabernig. Visual identity of the department was created by renowned British artist Liam Gillick whose video work and wall installation would be also present.
The exhibition is the result of a curatorial cooperation of Adam Budak, chief curator of the National Gallery in Prague, with Jan Kratochvil and Piotr Sikora.
Excited to announce that I'll be co-coordinating the first monthly live performance event, Zoo, in the first year BA Fine Art studios at Kingston University.
