Košice Seed Library : Seeds that Move | Šopa Gallery, Košice

As winter in the Northern Hemisphere is traditionally the time to plan the garden and to tell stories, the exhibition uses this contemplative moment to speculate about the potential of seeds. Each seed carries a wealth of knowledge, the cultural and biodiversity of where they come from through histories of coevolution with communities, as well as potential for the future. This project is a collection of contributions by artists, curators, designers, gardeners, farmers and organisations from various parts of the world, containing actual seeds, conceptual seeds, artworks, spells, instructions, videos and sound recordings.

Curated by Borbála Soós, with works by Elena Agudio / Savvy Contemporary,  James Bridle, Joélson Buggilla & Jorgge Menna Barreto, Sunoj D & Namrata Neog / Lakshmi Nivas, Sári Ember, Saskia Fischer, Oto Hudec,  Areej Huinti, Zayaan Khan, Jumana Manna, Emma Nicolson / Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Elia Nurvista, Uriel Olow, Martin Piaček, Tabita Rezaire, Sara Rodrigues & Rodrigo B. Camacho / Landra, Vivien Sansour / Palestine Heirloom Seed Library, Ai Wei Wei, Ayman Zedani, Amy Watson / Pool

British Art Show 9 | Wolverhampton Art Gallery

British Art Show 9 explores three overarching themes – healing, care and reparative history; tactics for togetherness; and imagining new futures, through four exhibitions.

Many of the artists in BAS9 investigate identity from an intersectional perspective, taking account of multiple identities that coexist such as class, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality. In Wolverhampton the exhibition explores these ideas in a critical dialogue with Wolverhampton’s cultural history which has been shaped by the diverse populations that came to work in its manufacturing industries during the post-war period.

BAS9 is curated by Irene Aristizábal and Hammad Nasar and includes work by over 40 artists.

British Art Show 9 | Aberdeen Art Gallery

The British Art Show is a landmark touring exhibition that celebrates the vitality of recent art made in Britain. British Art Show 9 was developed at a precarious moment in Britain’s history that has brought politics of identity and nation, concerns of social, racial and environmental justice, and questions of agency to the centre of public consciousness. The artists presented in the exhibition respond in critical ways to this complex context; imagining more hopeful futures and exploring new modes of resistance.

BAS9 is curated by Irene Aristizábal and Hammad Nasar and includes work by over 40 artists.
