Give, Up: Danielle Dean, Nikita Gale, P. Staff and EJ Hill

8 – 23 October 2021

Los Angeles-based gallery Commonwealth and Council debuts new work by Danielle Dean, Nikita Gale, P. Staff, and EJ Hill.

Spanning diverse practices including time-based media, sculpture and installation, these four artists examine the implications of being a marginalised body in an entangled ecosystem of market economy, neoliberal politics, and mass media, revealing the invisible and silenced labor, speech, and self- assertion of identity. Highlights from the presentation include a series of new sculptures by P. Staff expanding on their installation, On Venus, exhibited at London’s Serpentine Galleries in 2019 and a new body of work by EJ Hill inspired by his upcoming presentation at Prospect 5, New Orleans.
