Dissident Assemblies: A celebration and consideration of a 15-year-old Artist-Run Initiative.

All Spaces
29 Sep 2018–22 Oct 2018

Opening 28 September, 6–8pm
Dissident Assemblies is a group exhibition curated by the KINGS committee and featuring artists with social and culturally focused practices. The exhibition will look at KINGS Artist-Run through a site oriented approach, engaging with the physical, archival and administrative infrastructure of the gallery. We aim to consider the operations and mechanisms of KINGS as a social space that is concurrently defined by its building, geographic location and public. The exhibition marks the 15 year birthday of KINGS Artist-run and will include talks and publication.

KINGS has specifically invited artists whose practice reflects a critical approach to site through pedagogical, performative, sculptural and socially engaged practices. We have also aimed to engage with practitioners that offer valuable insights into social and cultural processes. The project is thus insistently plural, potentially ephemeral and a self-reflexive engagement with history and time.

Participating artists include Sean Dockray, Simone Slee, Kim Donaldson, Yuval Rosinger, Katie West, DUDSPACE and more!
