Event description

Description

Join Approved by Pablo as we takeover a 50,000 square foot factory in the East London district of Silvertown for a multi-sensorial, immersive exhibition bringing together 14 artists from 7 different countries and acting as an experimental B-side to London’s Frieze Art Fair. On the 30th September, from 7pm, we've teamed up with NTS Radio for an amazing Private View & Launch Party. Featuring NTS resident DJ sets from Turner Prize winner Mark Leckey, designer, producer and London legend Trevor Jackson, alongside Rory Bowens and Latete Atoto. The night will also include a performance by emerging artist Rosana Antoli.

About the exhibition

Filling the poetically empty rooms of the Silver building with sound, video, installation, performance, and events, the project will occur weeks before the Brutalist block is transformed into a working space for artists and makers in a project being undertaken in partnership between Mill Co. and the GLA.

Silver Sehnsucht will critically reflect on both the odd merging of past, present and future that the German word Sehnsucht connotes, as well as the ways these are reflected in the surrounding area of Silvertown itself. It will explore the bittersweet feeling which emerges from the increasing speed of contemporary world, the feeling of loss for something unknown in the anxious process of ushering in something new.
