A Needle Walks into a Haystack. Liverpool Biennial, curated by Mai Abu ElDahab and Anthony Huberman.
The artists in this exhibition disrupt many of the conventions and assumptions that usually prescribe the way we live our lives. They attack the metaphors, symbols and representations that make up their own environment, replacing them with new meanings and protocols: bureaucracy becomes a form of comedy, silence becomes a type of knowledge, domesticity becomes a place of pathology, inefficiency becomes a necessary vocation, and delinquency becomes a daily routine.

In the Past, Only Le Quartier in Quimper organized 2 solo expositions of Marc Bauer and Dierk Schmidt from 7 June - 21 September.
Marc's exposition, In the Past, Only draws on his residency in Brittany and encounters fuelling his knowledge of the context. Bauer invents characters, among them a teenage boy and a woman working at the Arsenal in Brest, who provide a narrative structure for his new series of drawings. (Part of a text by Keren Detton) Le Quartier, Quimper.
