Goldsmiths Exhibition: The Table
Curated by Mariana Lemos
6-9 March 2019
Opening Tuesday 5 March 6.30-9.30pm
The table carries a variety of differing associations. It evokes images of domestic intimacy, as well as ideas about horizontality and democracy. By default, however, it also represents methods of hierarchisation and exclusion – Who gets a seat at the table?
Containing the potential to facilitate spaces of equality as well as of discrimination, the table simultaneously embodies mechanisms of both inclusion and exclusion.
A large wooden table is at the centre of the exhibition. It lays the foundations for realising and displaying the project: artworks, performances, video screenings and workshops aim at working through these dichotomies present in our everyday lives.
Developed by Mariana Lemos in collaboration with artists Laura Mallows, Hannah Wilson, Rosa Johan Uddoh, Emily Perry and Munesu Mukombe.
