RESOLVE Collective: them's the breaks

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

We are 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 are taking this situation extremely seriously and are currently 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 are fully committed to facilitating, them's the breaks has been deinstalled, and all events associated with the exhibition have been cancelled. 

The gallery space will remain open as a physical reminder of RESOLVE's experiences, and the materials used in its construction will be redistributed as originally intended.

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

‘An energetic and experimental takeover‘

‘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.‘
