Join us for the exhibition preview of Anne-Marie Copestake's first major solo exhibition in a public institution.

Inhabiting the intimacies of voice, language and the discreet materiality of our immediate world Looking in either direction the whole street was filled with people, some singing, moving towards x... is a vivid mediation on the politics of the unsung, unuttered and the tangible passion of collectivity in the everyday. Featuring the breadth and fluidity of Copestake’s oeuvre that traverses sculptures, prints, installation, moving image works, performance, text and sound, the exhibition navigates the simultaneous fragility and ‘joie de vivre’ of human communication and its necessity for a communal recognition.
