Jessie Makinson & others @ Pippy Houldsworth Gallery

9 July 2021 - 6 August 2021

Dancing in Dark Times, is an exhibition of new paintings and textiles exploring the evolving exchange between the bodies we occupy, the world we inhabit and the images we create. Bringing together an international group of artists – Jessie Makinson, Tonia Nneji,  Nengi Omuku, Samantha Rosenwald, Ilana Savdie, Constanza Schaffner, Lee Simmonds, Didier William, Qualeasha Wood and Hiroka Yamashita, many of whom are showing in the UK for the first time.

The exhibition presents a dynamic response to contemporary figuration, and explores the different ways in which each artist approaches the body to dance in defiance. Adapting a line by Bertold Brecht, the exhibition’s title speaks to optimism in the face of the upheaval of the past year – a time during which our physicality has gained renewed significance.
