Join us for the opening night of new exhibitions by Meriç Algün and Imran Perretta.
For her solo exhibition at Spike Island, Stockholm-based artist Meriç Algün presents a series of new and recent works that explore the precarious nature of love in a world obsessed with individualism, consumption and borders.
the destructors is a solo exhibition and major new film commission by London-based artist Imran Perretta. Drawing on the artist’s own experience as a young man of Bangladeshi heritage, the film explores personal and collective experiences of marginalisation and oppression.
Imran Perretta’s film the destructors is produced by Chisenhale Gallery, London and Spike Island, Bristol, and commissioned by Chisenhale Gallery; Spike Island; the Whitworth, The University of Manchester; and BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead and supported by Outset Contemporary Art Fund. It tours to partner venues throughout 2019 and 2020.
Meriç Algün Day Craving Night is supported by SAHA – Supporting Contemporary Art from Turkey.
