The Manchester Contemporary - Stand 105
Transaction presents the work of Mishka Henner and Mike Chavez-Dawson, two Manchester-based artists who interrogate systems of power, belief, and commerce. Their works are often wry critiques and explorations of the languages and myths at the heart of art histories, popular culture, and industrial infrastructures.
For Transaction, Henner has produced a number of new original and editioned works from his Sightseeing, Richtered, and Golden Ratio (Cash Paintings) series, including a world premiere of his $17,711 painting, the latest in a long line of paintings sold at the values depicted.
Mishka's works have appeared in group shows at the Museum of Modern Art, NY, the Pinakothek Moderne, Munich, Turner Contemporary in Margate, and are collected by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., the Centre Pompidou, Paris, University of Salford Art Collection, and the Arts Council Collection in the UK. He received the ICP Infinity Award for Art in 2013 and shortlisted for the Deutsche Borse Prize and Prix Pictet.
Mike has exhibited and performed nationally and internationally at Tate Britain, Barbican, ICA, British Art Show 7 at Nottingham Contemporary, ZsONAMACO MEXICO ARTE CONTEMPORANEO 2017, Design Miami, The Whitworth Art Gallery, Home, Castlefield Gallery, Grundy Art Gallery, and the Whitstable Biennale.
