Chisenhale Gallery presents a solo exhibition by Amalia Pica, featuring newly commissioned works across sculpture, photography, installation and performance. The exhibition elaborates upon Pica’s ongoing interest in the social act of listening, sites of collective celebration and historical technologies of mass communication. This exhibition marks the culmination of Pica’s year-long offsite project I am Tower of Hamlets, as I am in Tower of Hamlets, just like a lot of other people are.
Amalia Pica’s exhibition is her first solo exhibition in the UK and is co-produced in partnership with Modern Art Oxford where a second chapter will be developed for exhibition in November 2012.
