Karen Russo will be showing new drawings, photographs and a film alongside Charles Avery and Dana Luxembourg at Frestonian Gallery, London. Curated by Tom Morton, The City & The City & The City borrows (and extends) the title of the British writerChina Miéville’s celebrated novel The City & The City (2009), a police procedural set in two separate fictional Eastern European cities, Besźel and Ul Qoma, which occupy the same physical territory, while having markedly different languages, cultures, and systems of belief. The exhibition, then, might in a sense be conceived of as aconurbation or megalopolis, whose constituent ‘cities’ each have their own complex civic identity, while sharing (sometimes surprising) correspondences and overlaps with not only their near neighbours, but with many other cities, real and imagined, from across human history. 16 SEPTEMBER – 31 OCTOBER 2020
