Amanda Ross-Ho

November 9 - December 20, 2017

Amanda Ross-Ho’s sculptural work encompasses a diverse range of media. Her exhibitions typically combine the handmade with the readymade. Industrially-produced objects are often copied using artisanal skills, scaled up, reproduced and repeated. 
This exhibition presents a new body of work inspired in part by Charlie Chaplin’s political comedy ’Modern Times’, made in 1936 during the great global recession. The installation takes the form of a factory floor dedicated to the production of oversized garments. Ross-Ho’s surreal, theatrical environment collapses and inverts notions of time, labour and economy.
The exhibition is Ross-Ho’s first solo exhibition in the United Kingdom and was originally commissioned by Bonner Kunstverein, Germany and Vleeshal, Middelburg, and generously supported by Kunststiftung NRW, Volksbank Bonn Rhein-Sieg and the Mondriaan Fund.

Sonic Rebellion: Music as Resistance
September 8, 2017 - January 7, 2018

Sonic Rebellion connects Detroit’s musical and political histories with a wide range of artworks and artifacts to offer a listening space for the Rebellion’s reverberations. The Rebellion must be listened to and heard if it is ever to be understood. The show connects these historic events to more recent social movements, from Occupy to Black Lives Matter, illustrating threads between past protests and the unresolved racial politics in the United States today. One major such thread is the role of music as a catalyst for social change and empowerment.
