Viaje hacia el eclipse

opening: Sunday, 7 April 2024

Mazatlán Museum of Art
Calle, Sixto Osuna 71
Centro, 82000 Mazatlán, Sin., Mexico

The exhibition will be the third and final installment in a series that began with the first exhibition Prologue, held at Maureen Paley & Studio M (15 September – 22 October 2023), dedicated to the Solar Eclipse on 8 April 2024 and

Across ancient cultures, the total eclipse of the sun holds significance and is often perceived as the birth of a star and the initiation of new life. The ability to view the eclipse from Mazatlán, a city within the state of Sinaloa, holds resonance for Sarabia, whose family heralds from this territory and much of his legacy and intimacy with the earth comes from this naturally rich landscape.

Hannah Starkey is participating in Hayward Gallery Touring’s major group exhibition After the End of History: British Working Class Photography 1989 – 2024, launching this month at Herbert Art Gallery & Museum. The exhibition brings together contemporary working class artists who use photography to explore the nuances of working class life in all its diversity.

The exhibition, emphasises the perspectives of practitioners who turn their gaze towards both their communities and outwards to the wider world. The year 2024 marks 35 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, signifying the end of Communism and the rise of Western Liberal Democracy. The exhibition questions the fate of working class culture post the 'End of History’, exploring identity, creativity and the imagery produced by the working class over the past three decades.

The exhibition will tour to Focal Point Gallery, Southend (3 July – 14 September 2024) and Bonington Gallery, Nottingham (27 September – 15 December 2024).

Chronos: health, access and intimacy

14 March – 1 September 2024

Tensta Konsthall
Taxingegränd 10
163 04 Spånga

Curated by Olivia Plender in collaboration with Cecilia Widenheim, Tensta Konsthall.

Participating artists: Jessie Bullivant, Cecilia Germain, Melanie Gilligan, Goldin+Senneby, Jakob Jakobsen, Matrix Feminist Design Co-operative, Park McArthur, Olivia Plender, Ihra Lill Scharning, Vård och värde, and Constantina Zavitsanos.

What body standards have shaped the society in which we live? And what can we learn from the functional rights struggle that requires access to the city and the built environment? The exhibition is themed around the topics of health, access and intimacy. Many of the artworks explore the structural conditions within society that block access to public spaces and institutions for those bodies that do not fit into a recognised ‘norm’ – for instance, on the grounds of gender, disability, race, or sexuality.

The exhibition is produced with support from the Barbro Osher Pro Suecia Foundation.
