Take a Breath is a major new exhibition that provides an historical, social, political, and personal examination of breathing – why we breathe, how we breathe and what we breathe – exploring themes of decolonisation, environmental racism, indigenous language, the impact of war on the environment and breath as meditation. Featuring the work of Marina Abramović, Lawrence Abu Hamden, Ammar Bouras, Alex Cecchetti, Maria Hassabi, Belinda Kazeem-Kamiński, Ana Mendieta, Isabel Nolan, Camille Norment, Okwui Okpokwasili, among many others.

The opening celebrations includes an Artists’ Conversation with Alex Cecchetti, Belinda Kazeem-Kamiński, Isabel Nolan, and others, at 5.30pm, see booking details below.

A live performance of Alex Cecchetti’s Torneremo Onde, Torneremo Foreste (We will return as waves, we will return as forests), set within the immersive fabric work Medusa Mothers (2022), takes place in the galleries from 6 to 8pm.
