Kader Attia knows a thing or two about being an outsider. Born to Algerian parents who moved to the gritty banlieues of Paris, he’s experienced marginalisation in several senses; his retrospective, which explores the lives of social outcasts, runs nicely in parallel with Diane Arbus’s photographs of outsiders in the galleries upstairs. Each sculpture, photo and film installation in this show considers the ways in which colonialism continues to shape how Western societies represent and engage with non-Western cultures. Taking the notion of “repair” as both a physical and societal phenomenon, Attia looks at how different cultures mend objects, applying them to his artworks and drawing parallels to the healing of personal and cultural trauma. Estimated dwell time: 1 hour
