How to work together is a shared programme of contemporary art commissioning and research organised by three innovative not-for-profit London galleries: Chisenhale GalleryThe Showroom and Studio Voltaire.

Together, over three years, we are producing a series of artists’ commissions, exhibitions, events and an online think tank. We are combining our knowledge and resources to discover what we can do together that we could not do alone.

We are happy to announce our third and final round of commissioned solo exhibitions, opening in our galleries in April 2016.

Each year for the past three years, How to work together has commissioned three artists to produce an exhibition in our three galleries responding to our central question of “How to work together?”

Our final three commissioned artists are:

Sharon Hayes at Studio Voltaire: 14 April – 12 June

Maria Eichhorn at Chisenhale Gallery: 23 April – 29 May

Koki Tanaka at The Showroom: 29 April – 18 June
