People who have saved this event:


Launching Venice Agendas 2017, DACS hosts an exhibition exploring the idea of the contract from different perspectives: the contract between artist and audience, artist and institution, nation states, and the individual and society at large.


At a time of significant social and political turbulence in the world, the obligations – explicit or implied – which we have towards each other are being called into question, re-negotiated and re-written. 'The Contract' presents works that challenge the contractual agreements which we take for granted, recalls others which we need to remember, and provokes discussion about the nature of our obligations.

The exhibition includes artworks by Keith Arnatt, Hollis Frampton, Hew Locke, Donald Rodney, Monica Ross and Carey Young and is curated by Gilane Tawadros. 

Due to the nature of the exhibition, please book your visit in advance via our Billetto page here.
