In collaboration with PS/Y’s programme on Hysteria, Pump House Gallery presents a
solo exhibition of new work by London-based Canadian artist Zadie Xa.
In her work Xa explores identity, desire and personal fantasy. Employing painting, textile, video, and sound within her storytelling, Xa’s current practice is preoccupied with performative presentations where traditional cultural knowledge is passed between diasporic bodies. During the development for this exhibition at Pump House Gallery Zadie Xa presented Basic Instructions B4 Leaving, as part of PS/Y’s ‘Hysterical X’, at Café OTO in December 2016.
This exhibition is part of PS/Y’s Hysteria programme, 2017 and curated in partnership with Pump House Gallery. This exhibition is supported by Wandsworth Council and Arts Council England.
We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.
Nous remercions le Conseil des arts du Canada de son soutien. L’an dernier, le Conseil a investi 153 millions de dollars pour mettre de l’art dans la vie des Canadiennes et des Canadiens de tout le pays.
