Talbot Rice Gallery announces the opening of group exhibition The Accursed Share, featuring Marwa Arsanios, Sammy Baloji, Cian Dayrit, Moyra Davey, Hanna von Goeler, Goldin+Senneby, Lubaina Himid, Hana Miletić, and terra0.

The history of monetary debt is one of startling violence: the sovereign figurehead on the banknotes in your pocket is an echo of centuries of empire-building, colonisation, evictions, enslavement, exploitation and militarisation. At a time of spiralling debts and the cost-of-living crisis, the nine artists and groups in The Accursed Share expose this wretched system and celebrate attempts to resist it.
