Join us on Saturday 4 May for a seminar and book launch event to accompany our current show by Pia Arke. . The exhibition Pia Arke: Silences and Stories has been organised in collaboration with @kwinstitutefcontemporaryart, and is the first major survey outside of Kalaallit Nunaat (Greenland), and the Nordic countries. Seldom exhibited outside the Scandinavian context, Pia Arke was a Greenlandic Inuk and Danish artist (1958-2007) who strove to make visible the colonial and complex relationship between Denmark and Greenland, and to address significant questions of identity and representation. Arke remains a significant international figure within both artistic practice and post-colonial discourse, who spoke of an identity outside of being defined as either Danish or Greenlandic; a ‘third place’ that allowed for hybridity and resisted polarisation. By working closely with the @piaarkeestate, and numerous lenders across Scandinavia, the exhibition includes photography, film, sculpture, performance and rare archival material. The partner exhibition, Pia Arke: Arctic Hysteria will be shown at KW in Berlin from 6 July – 20 October 2024. . . SEMINAR, 2–5.30pm Hear from some of the publication’s contributors, including Alice Maude-Roxby, Mette Sandbye, Siri Paulsen, and Sofie Krogh Christensen. . BOOK LAUNCH, 5.30–7pm Co-published by John Hansard Gallery and KW, the publication Pia Arke will launch on the night. Edited by the curators of the two respective exhibitions at John Hansard Gallery and KW – Ros Carter (@ros_carter) and Sofie Krogh Christensen (@skchris_) – it examines the work of Pia Arke and discusses it within the contemporary context. It also positions Arke within a wider international framework and explores connections with other significant artists working internationally during the same period. . Pia Arke: 128pp, illustrated throughout. Designed by @daly_lyon. .
