    Raqs Media Collective Shortlisted for the Fourth Plinth

    Frith Street Gallery is delighted to announce that Raqs Media Collective have been shortlisted for the prestigious Fourth Plinth Commission in Trafalgar Square. In their proposed work ‘The Emperor’s Old Clothes,’ the artists invoke a statue, a stony relic of the British Empire, only to take away the body of power from this figure, leaving just an empty robe as a reminder.

    A maquette will be presented in the Annenberg Court at the National Gallery from 19 January until 26 March 2017.

  • Daphne Wright: Emotional Archaeology

    Daphne Wright: Emotional Archaeology

    Emotional Archaeology
    Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin
    20 January – 26 February 2017

    In collaboration with Arnolfini, Bristol, the RHA presents a selection of work from the last 25 years by the Irish artist Daphne Wright who has been based in Bristol. Wright’s work engages a series of conceptual ideas and sculptural languages, which have been quietly influential. It is the result of a relentless curiosity into the way in which materials can create an involvement with often unspoken human preoccupations. Wright is not afraid to embrace domestic and familial subjects in order to encourage a genuine psychological commitment from the viewer; this is a retrospective look at Wright as an emotional archaeologist.

    Habit-co-Habit: 2017 Pune Biennale
    5 – 29 January 2017
    Sambhaji Park, Pune

    For the 2017 Pune Biennale, Massimo Bartolini has created a social sculpture in the form of a small amphitheatre around a tree in one of Pune’s leafy gardens, Sambhaji Park. The sculpture is meant to be both symbolic and functional; even while it ensconces the tree it will become the platform for hosting short dance performances.

    Raqs Media Collective: Thicket

    THICKET with Raqs Media Collective
    14 – 18 December 2016
    Tate Exchange (Switch House, Level 5), Tate Modern, London

    Raqs Media Collective will transform the floor of Tate Exchange into a thicket; a forest of lines and connections that grow over time. This interactive work will foster an accumulation of readings that will occupy space, time, and attention through a participatory installation. Thicket will be realized through three actions, titled “Anybody, Everybody, Make a Mark”, “The Unbroken Reading” and “Memorophilia”.

    Events are free but require booking through the Tate Modern website:
