About

Opening Reception: Wednesday, 6 September, 6 – 8pm 
Exhibition Hours: 7 – 10 September, 12 – 5pm 
Performance: "Birthday Party", Saturday, 9 September, 8 – 10pm

9 Ways To Tell Yourself Everything Will Be Fine features new works by four current Goldsmiths MFA students Beverley Gadsden, Stefanie Gerstmayr, Sam Greer and Kate Howard and is curated by Goldsmiths MFA Curating student Kate Yook.

The works on view push the extent to which signifiers of comfort can produce genuine feelings of wellbeing. Recognitions of the staged or mundane throughout expose an underlying artifice, questioning the viability of self-care as a worthwhile coping mechanism. The exhibition closes with a staged birthday party performance that further tests themes of artifice, the generic, seduction and comfort.

9 Ways To Tell Yourself Everything Will Be Fine forms part of the Goldsmiths University of London MFA Curating Professional Practice Placement at A•P•T Gallery. Supported by Goldsmiths and Art in Perpetuity Trust.
