‘Dessert is the best time.’ – Larry Mitchell, The Faggots & Their Friends Between Revolutions

“Cognitive behavioural therapy to encourage positive thinking feels as unreal as gay conversion therapy oh forget that i said that it’s actually going great thanks for asking at least i am clinging onto the last scraps of politicised foliage knotweed response able body politic i can grasp the refracted glitter of the nettle it is spring it is warm it is a terrible country we are in your hair smells perfect like sweat i am burning for vegetable-based hopeful breakfasts i can’t wrap my soul around the discursive snow globe anymore i am just building many crushable things and decorating them so so well translucent the world is literal drag and hard enough that the self congeals in the edges whilst presenting as ubiquitous but it’s actually green light gardening beetroots purple prose sweet potatoes honeysuckle bonfire disco balls in the orchard everything is fine sounds fake but ok historical attempts at transdimensional escape routes patchouli chasers and repetitive wind chimes against the structural flaw in the geodesic dome the yellow green purple rotated pentagon no jobs for no workers and just us now trying to try to try the way that’s not a way there is no dry land nobody knows what the inside of the moon looks like it is spring it is warm it doesn’t need to be anything else”

Almanac GalleryThe Gallery

Almanac was founded in London in 2013 by Astrid Korporaal, Francesca von Zedtwitz-Arnim and Guido Santandrea, and is run by Guido Santandrea and Jeremy Waterfield.

It operates as a non-profit in London and Turin dedicated to showing art in various forms and engaging with ways art can become a part of the daily rhythms of life. We are interested to explore the borders of curatorial agency and the potential of cultural change through creative collaborations. Regarding the exhibition as an act of communication, we aim to facilitate dialogue as a way of opening up artistic practices to new registers of thought. By focusing on solo shows of young artists as well as a complementary programme of events and performances, our aim is to support artists in their individual practice and to provide a deeper knowledge of these practices to the public. These activities also form a part of our commitment towards stimulating public engagement.

Almanac’s programme in Turin aims to facilitate exchange between young international artists, the local audience and curators, institutions and collectors. Begun as an extension of Almanac’s London-based programme and established with the material support of Spazioborgogno, Milan, the platform is conceived as a series of residencies and exhibitions directed by critical research.
