Please join us on Saturday, 9 September, 8 – 10pm for a birthday party in the context of a beautiful creekside gallery surrounded by artworks. Open to all.
Hosted by Sam Greer and Beverley Gadsden.
– DJ John Flindt
– Surprise Birthday Festivities
This performance forms part of 9 Ways To Tell Yourself Everything Will Be Fine, a group exhibition that features new projects 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. At the same time, recognitions of the staged or mundane expose an underlying artifice, questioning the viability of self-care as a worthwhile coping mechanism.
9 Ways To Tell Yourself Everything Will Be Fine forms part of the Goldsmiths MFA Curating Professional Practice Placement at A•P•T Gallery. Supported by Goldsmiths and Art in Perpetuity Trust.
