The last of 2014’s round of How to work together commissions opened on 1 May 2014 – International Workers’ Day – at Chisenhale Gallery. Céline Condorelli’s new commission runs until Sunday 23 June.

Gerry Bibby’s show is now open at The Showroom until Saturday 22 June, and Ella Kruglyanskaya is on at Studio Voltaire until Sunday 8 June. Visit the Events page for more details on forthcoming events around each of the shows – this will be updated regularly with new information.

If you can’t make it to the shows – and even if you can – check out the project’s  Think tank, an online library of new research on the subject of working together, collaborating, cohabiting and cooperating. We have just published the first outcomes of Dr Andrea Phillips’ research project on the ways in which art’s organisational structures shape it’s politics. Andrea’s interviews with directors Polly Staple, Emily Pethick and Joe Scotland are a great read, as is her introductory text. Over the coming months, Andrea will be working together with us on a manifesto for arts organisations. Sign up to the mailing list to be kept up to date.

Also on the Think tank are a series of conversations between Céline Condorelli and sociologist Avery Gordon on the subject of work and friendship. These conversations represent Céline’s first engagement with the How to work together project, and outline the development of a set of ideas that have informed her solo exhibition at Chisenhale Gallery.
