RESOLVE Collective: them's the breaks

During the run of their exhibition, RESOLVE Collective and collaborators were subject to a number of unacceptable experiences, the subject of a statement released on 21 Jun which can be read here

We're deeply sorry for the pain caused to the members of RESOLVE Collective and those involved in their exhibition. Nobody should have to work in a place where they don’t feel welcome and respected. We're taking this situation extremely seriously and have been working with the broader team to understand the details of what happened. You can read a full statement from the Barbican here.

In a response which we've been fully committed to facilitating, them's the breaks was deinstalled, and all events associated with the exhibition were cancelled. 

The gallery space remained open until the end of the scheduled exhibition run as a physical reminder of RESOLVE's experiences, and the materials used in its construction were redistributed as originally intended.

The exhibition was commissioned by the Barbican, and is generously supported by Arts Council England.

‘An open, accessible, equitable place, a space where anyone can come and learn, rest, dance, watch, create. This isn’t a closed, private world, it’s a wide open one. And that feels pretty vital.‘
