Out of the Margins: Performance in London’s Institutions 1990s – 2010s at Whitechapel Gallery
Work by Hayley Newman and Anne Bean is included in Out of the Margins at Whitechapel Gallery, 30 August 2022 – 15 January 2023.
Out of the Margins attempts to map the live art scene by looking at initiatives of various kinds of organisations such as Gasworks, Matt’s Gallery, and The Roberts Institute of Art, which were vital in enabling a range of experimental and ephemeral practices in London.
Rarely seen archive material, photo and film documentation from the period are showcased, as well as references to key artists, theoreticians and cultural producers who elevated the status of performance within the visual arts.
