The group exhibition Speak at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery in London brings together four artists: Tania Bruguera, Douglas Gordon, Laure Prouvost, and Cally Spooner. The show coincides with the Serpentine Gallery’s survey of the late British conceptual artist John Latham. The artist in Speak each extend and update John Latham’s radical world view with their own sense of urgency. The gallery space is transformed with an installation of video, light, sound and sculpture, a bid for Cuban presidency, text works and games, and a composition of drawings, sound and a single body. Each artist explores language as a medium for action, exchange and disruption. Together, they reveal how John Latham’s ideas continue to resonate today.
Speak: Tania Bruguera, Douglas Gordon, Laure Prouvost, Cally Spooner / Serpentine Sackler Gallery, London (UK). Press view, March 1, 2017.
