The galleries are currently closed for the installation of our new exhibition. During this time, Ikon Shop is open Wednesday – Friday, 10.30am-5pm. Yorks Café is temporarily closed.
Ikon Gallery reopens on Wednesday 17 May at 12pm with the first UK exhibition by acclaimed Indonesian performance artist Melati Suryodarmo. Free entry, donations welcome.
A live performance of Suryodarmo’s work Sweet Dreams Sweet (2013) takes place at Ikon Gallery on Wednesday 17 May, 2-4pm. In this work, pairs of performers signify tensions between individual and collective identity for women in Indonesia and around the world.
Suryodarmo’s longest work, I’m a Ghost in My Own House (2012), sees her grind blocks of charcoal with a stone rolling pin continuously for 12 hours. Suryodarmo performs this work at Ikon Gallery on Friday 19 May, 10am-10pm.
