“I want to stay with the trouble, and the only way I know to do that is in generative joy, terror, and collective thinking”,
The Intercontinental is a group show of new work by PhD researchers from the Slade School of Fine Art. This exhibition searches out the positions and shared concerns of artists working across different media as they reflect on the crisis of now within politics, ecology and the media. The setting, a vacated house in central London, offers a context where notions of identity, home, and the everyday are negotiated and revaluated against wider questions posed by recent political events and environmental contingencies.
On February 22, the exhibition will host the morning session of The Intercontinental Breakfast Club, a symposium addressing discourses of the post-factual. The symposium continues later at Koppel Projects (EVENTBRITE.) This morning session at Roaming ROOM will provide an opportunity to join academics and researchers over brunch, in discussions centred around the difficulties we face in discerning facts, dismantling popular narratives and reflecting on our own responsibilities and blind spots.
Artists: Meng Ju Shih, Nick Laessing, Eloise Fornieles, Nir Segal, Dana Ariel, Dawn Gaietto, Jin Han Lee, Kay Tabernacle, Leah Lovett, Nayoung Jeong, Naomi Siderfin, Yvonne Feng, Sophie Bouvier Ausländer, Philip Thompson, Ioana Marinescu, Anna Bunting-Branch, Feiyi Wan, Leni Dothan, Malgorzata Dawidek Gryglicka.
