A SPECIAL ARROW WAS SHOT IN THE NECK...
Curators' Preview: Thursday 12 June, 6-7pm
Opening Reception: 7-9pm
Exhibition continues 13 June - 2 August 2014
A Special Arrow Was Shot In The Neck... is the seventh edition of the DRAF Curators' Series, with guest curators Natasha Ginwala (b. 1985, India) and Vivian Ziherl (b. 1982, Australia), co-founders of the ongoing curatorial research project Landings.
A Special Arrow Was Shot In The Neck... engages artistic practices that approach Land as a language-form of kinship, affect, and decolonial resistance. This group exhibition brings together a range of international artists, poets and choreographers; including Etel Adnan, Boyle Family, Chandralekha, Bonita Ely, Simone Forti, Ganesh Haloi, Camille Henrot, Yee I-Lann, Juma-adi, The Otolith Group, Selma and Sofiane Ouissi, Prabhakar Pachpute and Dashrath Patel, with research contributions by Filipa César, Simryn Gill, Angela Melitopoulos and Angela Anderson and Rachel O'Reilly.
The Otolith Group's film Medium Earth (2013), will be screened at the Rio Cinema, Dalston on Tuesday 22 July, 6.15pm.
DRAF Curators' Series supports international curators by commissioning special research-based projects, considering the curator as an author. The programme is not open to proposals: curators whose work DRAF has been following are specifically invited to present in London. The series supports independent curators, who are able to develop original research and proposals without institutional constraints. Selected curators may use works from within or outside the David Roberts collection. Former participants include Pablo León de la Barra (Mexico), Cylena Simonds (UK), Raimundas Malasauskas (Lithuania), Mihnea Mircan (Romania), Mathieu Copeland (UK), Simone Menegoi and Chris Sharp (It and US). Natasha Ginwala (India) and Vivian Ziherl (Australia) will be the seventh presentation in the series.
