In the time when all the news that was fit to print got printed, Raqs decided to take things in hand. History, they decided, would no longer be destiny. Corrections were clearly necessary. The first draft of history would yield the next draft of whimsy. Everything and its shadow was re-run, banks were broken, trees were asked the time, and clocks followed strange instructions. The Raqs Media Collective’s curiosity about what time does to the world and to our conscience lies behind the works and images that constitute Corrections to the First Draft of History.
Frith Street Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new video, sculpture and wall-based work by Raqs Media Collective. This will be the artists’ third solo show at the gallery.
To celebrate our 25th anniversary, Frith Street Gallery is delighted to announce the reopening of our original space at 60 Frith Street, Soho Square, where the gallery first operated in 1989. Since opening, Frith Street Gallery has emerged as one of the art world’s most interesting forces, instrumental in developing the careers of internationally renowned figures as well as supporting those at earlier stages of their career. The reopening of the space marks our achievements to date and our quarter century.
