Ten Inspiring Days
Brining together an intergenerational selection of artists that have been invited to stage their work as a space that extends a form of hospitality or community, to other artists and visitors alike. The artists create images of networks and forms of participation that link natural environment with social media, organic and technological, human and non-human.

Isabel Lewis is in residence throughout the duration of the exhibition hosting a number of her signature occasions, combining music, food, drink and perfume to create an alternative environment for dance, discussions and invited musicians.

CAMP, a collaborative studio founded in Mumbai in 2007, use the Transformer Galleries as a space to share a selection of rarely-seen installations from the past 15 years that rework everyday circuits of electricity.

Wu Tsang and Fred Moten present Gravitational Feel, a sculptural performance using fabric and sound to explore the social and physical significance of touch and voice. Installations by Carlos Casas, Phill Niblock, and Lorenzo Senni exist as site-specific environments open to the public by day.

Fujiko Nakaya will transform the South Terrace for the first time with an immersive fog sculpture, animated by a light and soundscape made in collaboration with Nakayaโ€™s historic collaborators: Ryuichi Sakamoto and Shiro Takatani; and host performances by renowned dancer and choreographer Min Tanaka.

Six unmissable nights
The daytime installations act as springboards for six nights of ticketed live performances. You can browse the full programme for each night below and book tickets online. The live nights will showcase both established and emerging artists working across performance, film, sound and dance.

There is a rattle and hiss as a Subway train hurtles by, the painted metal a riot of colour – a speeding canvas for guerilla artists against the smoking cityscape. This is The Big Apple 1977 and the city is on fire.

In the Bronx, a new kind of hybrid music – a DIY collage of looped Funk and Disco breaks that will one day dominate the sonic landscape – is being born on street corners and in makeshift dance halls. They call it Hip Hop.

In Central Manhattan the lights of Broadway shine down on the throngs clamouring outside Studio 54, as inside Warhol gets down with Grace Jones, and the stars swing from the mirror balls and dance, ankle deep, in glitter.

The word is out – there’s a block party in Harlem tonight, and you jump the barriers and head Uptown. You get off at 125th street, the bass making the pavement beneath your feet shudder as you head towards the sound. There’s electricity in the air tonight and the streets themselves feel alive – because this the city that never sleeps, where the party never stops and the night is always young.

Visit this winter as we turn our rooftop space in Brixton into a scene from New York in the 1970s; drawing inspiration from iconic venues such as Studio 54 and the Harlem Apollo we are taking you across the pond and back in time with a selection of themed bars, a night club, private rooms and New York inspired street food.

  • Le Freak (night club) glittering mirror ball playground, inspired by the legendary Studio 54
  • Brixton Apollo (bar / club) art deco homage to Harlemโ€™s iconic Apollo Theatre: โ€˜Where stars are born and legends are madeโ€™
  • Club Rapture (bar) punk rock palace – The grubby jewell in the crown of the Lower Eastside scene
  • Coldharbour Cafe (bar) prop up the counter of a quintessential New York diner

@ Victoria Miro, Gallery I, 16 Wharf Road, London N1 7RW

www.victoria-miro.com

Historical and contemporary works feature in a group exhibition by artists concerned with the socio-political issues of their day, who question the status quo and the power structures found within societies, and who take the very language of protest as a means to explore its potency.

Taking as a starting point Alice Neelโ€™s 1936 painting Nazis Murder Jews, the exhibition presents new and recent works by artists including Doug Aitken, Elmgreen & Dragset, Isaac Julien, Wangechi Mutu, Richard Prince and Sarah Sze amongst others. These works do not document protests per se, but rather through image, composition, gesture, material, form or concept, serve as a call to action โ€“ inspiring consideration of possibilities for a life of freedom, an insistence on human rights, and continued debate and dialogue around the immediate social and political issues which confront our global community.

Artists:
Doug Aitken, Jules de Balincourt, Vlassis Caniaris, Elmgreen & Dragset, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Christian Holstad, Isaac Julien, Yayoi Kusama, Wangechi Mutu, Alice Neel, Chris Ofili, Richard Prince, Sarah Sze, Wolfgang Tillmans, Rirkrit Tiravanija and Kara Walker.
