Mene Mene Tekel Parsin

  • 21 May — 9 July 2017

Launch event: Saturday 20 May, 6pm-8pm
There will be live performances during the launch event by vocalist Elaine Mitchener, alongside exhibition artists Claire Potter and Gordon Hall who will be performing in the UK for the first time.

Mene Mene Tekel Parsin brings together works by international artists working across a variety of disciplines, who employ words and language to illuminate and obfuscate, fully cogent of the propagandist deployment of slogans and the seductively tall tales of advertising copy.

The artists are Sarah Boulton, Stanley Brouwn, Jesse Darling, Gordon Hall, Evan Ifekoya, Sulaiman Majali, Imran Perretta, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, Özgür Kar, Claire Potter, Rosa Johan Uddoh, Hannah Weiner and Constantina Zavitsanos.

Mene Mene Tekel Parsin includes work that employs words and language to illuminate and obfuscate, fully cogent of the propagandist deployment of slogans and the seductively tall tales of advertising copy and the exhibition addresses legibility – hailed by internet utopians, mass-marketeers and contemporary designers as a democratising prerogative that has come to function as a form of surveillance both at border controls and in digital capitalism.

For further details, and to book tickets for the launch, please visit the website.

Curated by Jesse Darling and supported through public funding from Arts Council England.
