Review: Theaster Gates @ White Cube Gallery

Daily Serving has just published my review of the Theaster Gate’s new show, Freedom of Assembly, now up at White Cube Gallery‘s Bermondsey site.

Freedom of Assembly is Theaster Gates’ second solo exhibition with London’s White Cube Gallery. Having won the Artes Mundi prize in January, Gates is currently receiving praise for his installation at this year’s Venice Biennale. Freedom of Assembly comes at a high point in the artist’s career, showing a new tendency to reflect and reconfigure, though by way of a comparatively conventional sculpture and painting show with several telling absences.

You can read the whole review here at Daily Serving.
