Jeremy Deller & Fraser Muggeridge: ENGLISH MAGIC REMIX

Exhibition opening party: 10th October 2014. 6pm-9pm 
Open: 12 - 5pm, Friday - Sunday. 10 October 2014 - 11 January 2015

CRATE is delighted to announce the opening of a collaborative show of new works by Jeremy Deller and Fraser Muggeridge.

Taking elements from Deller’s English Magic exhibition, English Magic Re-Mix is a selection of new and re-worked imagery. Conceived originally as being a celebratory way to mark the end of a touring show, English Magic Re-Mix acts as the naughty offspring of the original.

The exterior of the CRATE building (a former printworks behind Margate High Street) will be transformed with posters and viewable at all times throughout the duration of the show. English Magic Re-Mix will run concurrently with the final showcase of English Magic at Turner Contemporary, Margate (11 October 2014-11January 2015).

Two prints will be for sale in an edition of 300 at the exhibition.

Zineb Sedir: SAPHIR

Screening and conversation.
Saturday 29 March, 6pm.
Walpole Bay Hotel, Margate.

Zineb Sedira’s twin-screen installation Saphir (2006), was filmed in the city of Algiers – its sharp, azure light illuminating parallel stories of migration and historical legacy that are embodied in the presence of the Safir hotel, a faded architectural landmark from French colonial times. In this special presentation at the Walpole Hotel in Margate, another place where fluctuating maritime light is a constant feature, and whose recent history has also been informed by patterns of migration and architectural change, Sedira will show Saphir, and a new work, Guiding Light (2014), inspired by J.M.W. Turner.

After the screening, she will be in conversation with the critic, Lucy Reynolds. This event is a collaboration between Film and Video Umbrella and Crate, and takes place as part of Film and Video Umbrella’s 25th anniversary programme, 25 Frames. To join a walking party to The Walpole Hotel for Sedira’s screening, meet outside Turner Contemporary at 5pm to be taken on the short walk along the coastal cliffs. The hotel is a 15/20 minute walk from the town centre or a five minute cab ride.

The Walpole Bay Hotel. Fifth Avenue, Cliftonville, Margate, Kent. CT9 2JJ

Micheal Crowe: RAYZON DETRA (ON ROMANCE)

Preview 15 November, 2013. 18.00 - 21.00
Open 16 November 2013 - 12 January 2014, Friday - Sunday, 12 - 5pm 

CRATE is pleased to present Razyon Detra (on romance), an exhibition of new work by Michael Crowe across Crate's project spaces and outdoor sites in Margate.

Romance can be reasonably thought of as unfashionable, twee, clichéd, anti-erotic and unrealistic in today's irony soaked world. Rayzon Detra offers a wealth of alternatives intended to breathe wild-eyed new life into this droopy genre, via texts, video, animation, survey, land art, publications and sculpture. Michael Jackson, distant planets, seeds, delicious litter, lies, unwanted sports gifts, Timmy Mallet and French New Wave all distort and melt in this contemporary swoon.

About the artist:

Michael is a writer and an artist. His large scale project, “Mysterious Letters” involves writing handwritten letters to everyone in the world (including you and everyone you’ll ever meet) with Lenka Clayton. He has exhibited internationally, most recently at FRAC, Paris; Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen, Switzerland; Simultanhalle, Germany. He has given talks at various venues including the BFI and the New Museum, NY and his work has been featured in Time magazine, BBC, the New Yorker, the Smithsonian and Frieze.
