Multi-decade exploration of the relationship between Modernism and its manifestations in the contemporary. In the exhibition—comprised of two new bodies of work and a monumental bronze—Coventry disabuses Modernism of its utopian promise, locating its residue in the debris of the social landscape.

He was also a co-founder and curator of City Racing, an influential not-for-profit gallery in Kennington, South London from 1988-98.

His work has been exhibited widely in the UK and Europe and is included in collections worldwide, including the British Council; Tate Modern; Arts Council of England; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis;, and The Museum of Modern Art, New York. In 2010 Coventry was awarded the John Moores Painting Prize.His work will be included in Double Act: Art and Comedy, an exhibition presented at The MAC Belfast in May 2016.

April, 1984 Winston Smith, thinks a thought, starts a diary and falls in love. But Big Brother is always watching.

Following a sell-out international tour, this critically and publicly acclaimed production of 1984 will return to the Playhouse Theatre in London’s West End this summer. George Orwell’s dystopian masterpiece, adapted by Olivier Award-winner Robert Icke and Olivier Award-nominee Duncan Macmillan.

Now seen by over a quarter of a million people, this Headlong, Nottingham Playhouse and Almeida Theatre production premiered at Nottingham Playhouse in September 2013. Since opening, 1984 has played to packed houses at the Almeida Theatre, as well as throughout its two West End runs and in performances across the globe during national and international tours.

The definitive book of the 20th century is re-examined in a radical, award-winning adaptation exploring surveillance, identity and why Orwell’s vision of the future is as relevant now as ever.

1984 is directed by Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan with Daniel Raggett, Set and Costume is designed by Chloe Lamford, with Lighting designed by Natasha Chivers, Sound designed by Tom Gibbons and Video designed by Tim Reid.

George Orwell’s 1984, published in 1949, is one of the most influential novels in recent history, with its chilling depiction of perpetual war, pervasive government surveillance and incessant public mind-control. Its ideas have become our ideas, and Orwell’s fiction is often said to be our reality.

Mona Hatoum creates a challenging vision of our world, exposing its contradictions and complexities. Hot Spot is a steel cage-like neon globe which buzzes with an intense, mesmerising yet seemingly dangerous energy. Elsewhere electricity crackles through household objects, making the familiar uncanny.

This is the first major survey of Hatoum’s work in the UK, covering 35 years from her early radical performances and video pieces, to sculptures and large-scale installations. Born in Beirut to a Palestinian family, she settled in England in 1975.

Through the juxtaposition of opposites such as beauty and horror, Hatoum engages us in conflicting emotions of desire and revulsion, fear and fascination.

Immerse yourself in the work of one of the most important artists working today.
One of the most important and powerful artists of her generation finally gets the big British show she deserves.

An intimate evening of dance and sound to explore what it means to display and to be on display.

What do you choose to look at, what details do you pay attention to and what does this say about you? Sound and performance will be woven into the fabric of the building’s spaces as Candoco Dance Company explores how much we choose to display about ourselves, what we reveal subconsciously and what remains hidden.

As exhibits for the evening, Candoco’s disabled and non-disabled dancers will perform throughout the building, asking us to consider the subtleties and complexities of what it means to be on display. How much will they dare to reveal? What will you choose to see?

Go and experience a different kind of Friday Late Spectacular as Candoco brings a fresh perspective to the spaces and objects. Prepare to move and to be moved.

This is a special late-night event with a bar running all night.
