Private view Acting Truthfully Under the Circumstances @ Tenderpixel at 7-9pm
107 Essex Road, London, N1 2SL More Info: artmaplondon.com
Living Truthfully Under Imaginary Circumstances is the title of a video installation by Anja Kirschner and David Panos, exploring the acting exercises developed by renown actor and teacher Sanford Meisner. The exhibition and event series consider artworks that use the structure of the stage and certain conventions of scriptwriting as a framework for investigations into relationships, social interactions, and political ecologies. Taking theatre as an open ended process with its multiple contexts and references, the exhibition acts as catalyst for performances, screenings, talks and other forms of engagement.

Private view Los Angeles 2019 – Edge of Human @ French Riviera Offsite at 6-9pm
70 Paul Street, London, EC2A 4NA www.frenchriviera1988.com
Los Angeles 2019 presents an evolving collaborative performance project by Lucy Woodhouse and a host of artists, curators, writers and musicians.
Edge of Human will run for one week between the 14th and 20th of November and takes performance as a starting point; exploring the activity itself, the experience, the artefacts used or made, the resulting documentation. This project is interested in the ‘off cuts’ as well as the materials that are used and produced as a result of a type of practice that can exist as multiple versions of itself or as fragments of a whole – that moves between categorization and often defies commodification.
SATURDAY 15th NOVEMBER
Dial-A-Ride Episode 2 @ Hayward Gallery Project Space at 8-8:30pm
Southbank Centre, Belvedere Rd, London SE1 8XX More Info: artmaplondon.com
Mark Aerial Waller’s new video work Dial-A-Ride is a three-part series filmed in and around the Southbank Centre.
The Thames’ tidal flow and the gravitational pull of the Moon on the Earth provides the structural basis for the work, in which two beautiful and mysterious women, played by actresses Monika Bi?i?nait? and Smilte Bagdži?n?, make their way from the river bank through the backstage areas of the Southbank Centre, to the heights of the roof terraces. Incorporating elements of documentary filmmaking and spy genre fiction, the work creates unexpected alignments with daily activities and questions the authenticity of lived experience.
This three-part work is screened at the end of each filming day in the Hayward Gallery Project Space.
