Chisenhale Gallery, The Showroom and Studio Voltaire present the third and final year of commissions for their shared project How to work together.

How to work together launches three major new commissions, and the first solo exhibitions in the UK, by Sharon Hayes at Studio Voltaire, Maria Eichhorn at Chisenhale Gallery and Koki Tanaka at The Showroom. Over the past three years, the organizations have produced a thematic commissioning and research programme around the subject of "how to work together?", comprising a series of exhibitions, events and an online think tank. This exhibition series constitutes the conclusion of How to work together’s artistic programme.

Sharon Hayes uses photography, film, sound and performance to examine the intersections between the personal and the political. Drawing particular attention to the language of 20th century protest groups, she invites viewers and participants to re-experience moments of political and cultural oppression by staging protests, delivering speeches, and re-performing demonstrations. Hayes has looked specifically at queer and feminist archives in the US and UK which document gay rights and women’s liberation, restaging some of the most affective forms of presentation she has encountered in a large-scale installation and five-channel film. Her commission includes a performance and events programme featuring Mason Leaver-Yap, Ghislaine Leung and Ed Webb-Ingall.

Sharon Hayes (b. 1970 Baltimore, US) lives and works in Philadelphia. Recent solo exhibitions include: Baltimore Museum of Art, Maryland (2015); Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2012); Museo Naconial Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid (2012). 

This commission is supported by Charlotte Ford, Haro & Bilge Cumbusyan and Valeria & Gregorio Napoleone and is co-commissioned by The Common Guild.

Maria Eichhorn’s 5 weeks, 25 days, 175 hours is a two-part work examining contemporary labour conditions. The exhibition opens with a one-day symposium, featuring lectures by Isabell Lorey and Stewart Martin, chaired by Andrea Phillips.

At Eichhorn’s request the gallery’s staff will then withdraw their labour for the remaining five weeks of the exhibition. None of Chisenhale’s employees will work during this period and the gallery and office will be closed, implementing free time in the place of work.

Maria Eichhorn (b. 1962, Bamberg, Germany) lives and works in Berlin. Recent solo exhibitions include: the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, Vancouver, Canada (2015); Kunsthaus Bregenz, Austria (2014). Recent group exhibitions include: Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; 56th Venice Biennial (all 2015).

Lead Supporter: Shane Akeroyd. With additional support from the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen e.V. Chisenhale Gallery’s Talks & Events Programme 2016 is supported by Helen Thorpe; the Exhibition Programme 2016 is supported by Nicoletta Fiorucci.

Koki Tanaka departs from his curiosity about histories in The Showroom’s neighbourhood to stage a series of collective actions that suggest how to read the present through the past, and how working collaboratively in this way can be a starting point for new social possibilities.

Koki Tanaka (b. 1975, Tochigi, Japan) lives in Los Angeles and Kyoto. Recent solo exhibitions include: MACRO, Rome (2015); Deutsche Bank Kunsthalle, Berlin (2015); Passerelle Centre d'Art Contemporain, Brest, France (2014); Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco (2010). Tanaka received the Deutsche Bank "Artist of the Year" award (2015) and was awarded a Special Mention at the 55th Venice Biennale (2013). Upcoming exhibitions include: Liverpool Biennial (2016).

This commission is additionally supported by the Daiwa Foundation.
