B5 5RS





Chris Alton, Ian Giles and Greta Hauer
Co-curated by Ryan Kearney, Alice O’Rourke and Ariadne Tzika

Shown within the confines of a vitrine, this initial display presented several fictional and archival documents, which contributed to a larger discussion around communal models and their future potentials.

Three Models for Change was an accompanying group exhibition which opened at Stryx on Saturday 9 June, asserting the importance of historical awareness in establishing future potentials of communities. The works in this exhibition fluctuated between three actual and staged narratives: the formation of a fictional Quaker-punk band; the staging of cross-generational Queer histories; the uncertainty surrounding a newly formed volcanic island and its territorial disputes. The display and exhibition included existing work and new commissions by artists Chris Alton, Ian Giles, and Greta Hauer.
