Claire Partington in Seattle Art Museum

DEC 7 2018 – DEC 6 2020
SEATTLE ART MUSEUM
Get a new perspective on SAM’s popular Porcelain Room through the site-specific work of contemporary British ceramic artist Claire Partington. Taking Tea features an installation referencing Baroque painting and European porcelain factories, as well as a panel mounted with fragments from 17th- and 18th-century shipwrecks. 

Her figures engaged in the act of “taking tea” give a human face to the European craze for Chinese porcelain on display in the Porcelain Room. Partington’s installation suggests the often unintentional consequences of the porcelain trade during the expansion of international shipping routes. The figures in the installation are steeped in the rarified luxury and high-end fashion these items once conveyed, but they also expose the degrading aspects of trade—the reality of precarious ocean voyages and human exploitation.

Dadara Public intervention

23 April 2020. "The Artist Is Not Present".
On an empty Museumplein Amsterdam in corona times artist Dadara shows a new 244 x 244 x 80 cm installation.

This intervention questions what happens when the artist is gone and leaves us with a purely material world. And now that all physical exhibition spaces are gone, artists should transform public space into exhibition space. #redreamyourcity

Sarah Maple on BBC

'Not My Cup of Tea'
Sarah Maple's new exhibition, "Not My Cup of Tea", explores one of the big stories of 2016 and 2017 - Brexit. Her photographs combine the rhetoric of the 'Leave' campaign, with recognisable images to represent the United Kingdom. She spoke to Dan Damon about the work, and the uncertainties and questions about identity raised by Brexit.

Power to the People?

february 2017

#PowerToThePeople? #KeepOneShareOne

We invite you to take part in a radical get together where you can share your positivity and revolutionary ideas in collaboration with Sarah Maple. The gallery will become an inclusive space for debate, creation and interaction between you, your friends and the artist in residence. Bring along your good vibes and wildest ideas.

Sarah worked two weeks in our gallery, the space turned into a bustling meeting place where many people got together and shared their (revolutionary) ideas.

Through the theme of “Power to the people?” we encouraged interaction between the artist and the visitors, spontaneous creativity, and lively debates that will hopefully lead to a new, positive art movement which we will all be a part of. The various themes of the exhibition we were censorship and freedom of expression (‘Read my lips', 'Your opinion is wrong’), the question of nationalism vs. the refugee crisis (‘Go Home’ and ‘England's Glory’) as well as sexism and misogyny (‘Do not be a Dick with your Dick’).

 

Open your mind book

Order the ultimate Dadara book "Open your mind - So we can use your data".

This beautifully crafted hardcover edition by Dadara and KochxBos Publishers is a record of his full body of work.


From the Dadababy speakers, to the massive installations during the Burning Man Festival in Nevada, USA to Greyman Statue of No Liberty. Hence this astonishing book, which is a truly collaborative creation. It took a full year to select the best work and the wildest ideas, resulting in this career-spanning retrospective.

We are very grateful that Elizabeth Scarborough and Gert van Veen contributed with their aticles to this book. This body of work is a wonderful overview of Dadara’s art through the years and a small glimpse into the mind of its creator.
