If I Told Her

Hales Gallery

January 19—March 3, 2018

7 Bethnal Green Road

E1 6LA, London, UK

Hales Gallery will feature a solo exhibition of work by Parsons Fine Arts Faculty, Andrea Geyer. This will be Geyer’s first show with the gallery, and will coincide with a second exhibition of her work opening at the Hales Project Room in New York later in 2018.

Geyer’s critically-oriented work ranges across media, incorporating text, photography, painting, sculpture, video and performance. It explores the complex politics of time, in the context of specific social and political situations, cultural institutions and historical events. From her early investigations into urban environments and notions of citizenship to more recent research into women’s contributions to modernism, Geyer’s work continuously seeks to create spaces of critical, collective reflection on the construction of histories and ideas that are otherwise marginalised or obscured.


Together, the works in If I Told Her provide a creative study of and response to the rich stories – the life, work, and legacy – of the cultural pioneers whose voices have been silenced by history. In Geyer’s words: ‘My work aims to locate those silences in people and places to work in and against them … past the silencing machine. To offer new forms of listening, of moving. Here my stumbling is dance, my grunting is proclamation. And viewing is radically practiced affinity.’
