Via The Gallery:

tongues brings together the work of 10 artists to think through the process of alternating from one language or code to another.

Borne out of necessity and applied as a means of gaining visibility and recognition within a social, political or professional context, code-switching is also exercised to tactical and creative ends.

This exhibition considers the ways in which code-switching becomes a means of expressing multiple subjectivities, recognising the loaded significance that the term carries in relation to language, race and class, and the direct implications it has for self-expression, social acceptance and identity
