Inaugurated in 2009, Cities Methodologies is an initiative to showcase innovative methods of urban research from across UCL and the wider urban research community. Through peer-reviewed exhibits and events, it draws together undergraduate, masters, and doctoral research, alongside work produced by academics and other researchers and practitioners. Cities Methodologies promotes cross- and inter-disciplinary work and this year showcases recent research on a wide range of cities including Detroit, Paris, London, Johannesburg, Mumbai and Beirut.

This year, through a public call for participants, we particularly‚ though not exclusively‚ welcomed proposals on:

• Collaborative/public methods for urban research

• Mega events and urban change

• Housing and dishousing

Visitors to Cities Methodologies will encounter diverse methods of urban research in juxtaposition – from archival studies to digital media experiments, practice-led art, architectural and design work to film-making, soundscapes, games and public sculpture.

(in)Visible bodies: Migrants in the city of gold (curated by Johan Thom)

‘(in)Visible bodies: Migrants in the city of gold’  is a curated selection of three art projects produced by artists from and about the city of Johannesburg. The concept of ‘migration’ (as the movement of bodies from one place to another) is used as a framework through which to rethink the complex interplay between what is rendered in/visible by the symbolic, economic, political and historic dimensions of the city of Johannesburg.  The three works are ‘Challenging Mud – after Kazuo Shiraga’ (2008) by Johan Thom, the ‘Hilbrow/Dakar project’ (2007-8) by Hobbs/Neustetter and the ‘Trolley project’ (2007) by Ismail Farouk.

Press Release

The Double Body: being in space is an exhibition of new and recent installation and performance art by South African artists and explores the implicit relationship between physical performance, or presence, and architectural spaces.  Drawing from a body of recent writing that makes a case for a corporeal “knowledge” of space, the works in this exhibition are invested in how the body locates itself in space and develops a sense of place, how installation environments may bear the traces of bodily presences and the different levels at which a viewer experiences an artwork. Many of the works, Alexander Opper’s installation, Auseinandersetzung, in the upper-level of the gallery, for instance, consist in an immediate sensory encounter for the viewer that takes place prior to a formal or analytical engagement with the work.
Nevertheless, each contribution to the exhibition has been rigorously conceived and carefully chosen to create an immersive network of spatial environments that exist in a carefully hewn poetic conversation with each another.  This conversation will ring most clearly at the exhibition’s opening event, where Lerato Shadi, and Bronwyn Lace will present performance works and new video work by Nina Barnett, Same Seine, will be projected onto an outdoor “screen”.  This exhibition has been designed to read best after dark, and uses unconventional lighting selected to meet the display demands of each work individually.  In this way, the exhibition breaks with the temporal conventions of gallery viewing and relies on its external environment to determine the conditions of its legibility and meaning.
Participating artists are Marcus Neustetter, Bronwyn Lace, Alexander Opper, David Andrew, Nina Barnett, Johan Thom, Lerato Shadi, Phillip Raiford Johnson, Murray Kruger and Rodan Kane Hart.
Curated for the FADA Gallery by Anthea Buys.
A digital catalogue will be available from May 20 on the FADA website.

Opening: FADA Gallery, Johannesburg, Wednesday May 20, 6.30pm.
