Thank you to everyone who has already visited Peter Wächtler’s show, Far Out, at Chisenhale Gallery. The exhibition is open until 11 December, every Wednesday-Sunday, 12-6pm. We will have extended opening hours during Frieze, Monday-Sunday, 12-6pm and Thursday 6 October and Saturday 9 October 12-9pm.
Upcoming events include a conversation between Peter Wächtler and Polly Staple, Director of Chisenhale Gallery on Friday October 7, 12pm. For more information on all of the events please click here.
To accompany his exhibition, Peter Wächtler has produced a new limited edition artwork. Eat Your Own Ingredients (2016) is a hand-made leather sculpture, which references a classic top hat. Referring to the protagonist of Wächtler’s animation in his exhibition Far Out, this new edition materialises the character, allowing him to enter the physical world as a token of cartoon quality. For more information about the edition please visit our online shop.
Chisenhale Gallery would like to congratulate this year’s Turner Prize nominees, including past Chisenhale programme participants Anthea Hamilton, Helen Marten and Josephine Pryde. The Turner Prize Exhibition opens at Tate Britain this week.
We would also like to extend our congratulations to previous Chisenhale programme participant Bonnie Camplin for the opening of her solo show at Camden Arts Centre later this week.
Further congratulations to previous Chisenhale programme participants and Chisenhale Gallery Trustees Helen Marten and Ed Atkins for their respective openings at Serpentine Galleries, London and the Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Torino.
