Composer and playwright Klein is an artist whose neoteric vision has seen her quickly become one of the UK’s most intriguing and unpinnable producers and performers. She uses collagist techniques to assemble recordings of her own vocals and instrumentation into unique soundscapes with references ranging from Mythology to Pavarotti and the very ideology of the defunct TV network, 'Trouble'.

Grace Wales Bonner: A Time for New Dreams

19 Jan 2019 to 17 Mar 2019

Themes of mysticism and ritual permeated Grace Wales Bonner’s exhibition, which explored magical resonances within black cultural and aesthetic practices. Taking its title from Ben Okri’s collection of essays, A Time for New Dreams (2011), the exhibition focused on the shrine as a symbolic pathway for imagining different worlds and possibilities. Over the course of one month, a multi-sensory installation and series of happenings invited contemplation and activated the gallery.
