LAST CHANCE The Otolith Group: Xenogenesis

13 February

Free

Referencing the Xenogenesis trilogy of African American SF novelist Octavia Butler, this exhibition brings together a selection of key works by the London-based art collective The Otolith Group (Anjalika Sagar and Kodwo Eshun). The works on view, created between 2011 and 2018, provide what they call “a science fiction of the present” through the use of images, voices, sounds and performance. Suspended between fiction, poetry, documentary and theory, The Otolith Group’s post-cinematic films, high-definition videos and multiple screen installations address the global crises of the Racial Capitalocene that have shaped contemporary planetary capitalism.

Xenogenesis was first shown at the Van Abbemuseum; its presentation in Sharjah is organised by Van Abbemuseum and Sharjah Art Foundation. It is co-curated by Annie Fletcher, director of the Irish Museum of Modern Art, and Hoor Al Qasimi, SAF’s director.

Shows in galleries 1, 2, 5 and 6.
