Crossing Borders

An exhibition exploring hierarchies and systems of power, curated by Hannah Imhoff.

Millbank Tower is located beside the River Thames, opposite MI6, with Tate Britain to the right and Palace of Westminster within walking distance to the left. The second floor of the Millbank Tower, a Grade 2 listed building designed by Ronald Ward, will be infiltrated with conceptual art from 1 till 5 November 2023. The building, which was literally for years the office of the United Nations, the Labour and the Conservative party still appears as a gatekeeper and the mystery space where secret government resolutions were decided. The exhibition will present a site-embedded political space – that formulates a critique on institutional power structures.
The group show will present varying artistic positions that dismantle and question the role of borders, security and economic policies, power and class systems, the consequences of societal norms and human-made conditions – starting from the history and political topicality of the
space itself, the Millbank Tower.
