S/2 Gallery visit

11 July 2019 at 9:30 am - 10:30 am

Join us to explore the group show Where Were You at Night, a second in a trilogy of group shows at the S|2 gallery where a work of literature forms a conceptual framework for an exhibition and is accompanied by a new edition and reprinting of a story. The first group show, House of the Sleeping Beauties, took its title from a novella written by Japanese author Yasunari Kawabata.Where Were You at Night is titled after a collection of fourteen short stories written by Brazilian author Clarice Lispector, starting in 1951. Like this collection of stories in Lispector’s work, the exhibition itself encourages many narratives and remains open-ended in its exploration of materiality. The artists in the exhibition include female artists such as Olga de Amaral, Jagoda Buic, Francoise Grossen, Kim Lim, and Carole Seborovski, amongst others. Shifting between ideas of the hand-made, of touch, holes and weaving, the exhibition seeks to capture a sense of feelings intertwined. S|2 is a secondary gallery space in London affiliated with Sotheby’s but independent, aiming to mount research-based, critical exhibitions focusing on the edges of art history and to shine a light on artists that may be under recognised by the market. Breakfast will be served and guests will receive a catalogue. Cost: Patrons and Friends: Free; Visitors: £10 RSVP to RSVP@UKFriendsofNMWA.org
