Shen Xin presents her film Provocation of the Nightingale #1, which involves a personal dialogue between a Buddhist teacher who is an immigrant in Korea, and her student who manages a commercial DNA company. The screening, followed by a performance, confronts how criticism can unfold through emotional states that are informed by socio-political structures.

Please note: Grayson Perry: The Most Popular Art Exhibition Ever! at the Serpentine Gallery will be open until 8pm on evenings when Park Nights are taking place in the Pavilion.

Park Nights is the Serpentine’s experimental, interdisciplinary live platform, programmed for the Galleries’ annual architectural commission, the Serpentine Pavilion.
