The Infinite Mix

The Infinite Mix: Contemporary Sound and Image

A Hayward Gallery off-site exhibition presented
in collaboration with The Vinyl Factory at The Store, 180 The Strand.

I have heard this is excellent- a must see!

The Infinite Mix: Contemporary Sound and Image brings together audiovisual artworks that are soulful and audacious in their exploration of a wide range of subjects. In all of the works in this exhibition the interplay between moving image and sound is crucial. Most of the artists have composed, commissioned or remixed soundtracks that relate to the visual element of their work in unexpected ways, and ensure that what you hear is just as important as what you see.


Friday September 9th – Sunday December 4th….Free entry

In Richards’ work, images and sounds are merged into highly affective video works that combine footage from a wide range of sources edited into elegant compositions. His recent projects separate these elements out again, allowing space for multi-channel audio installations that combine sound in a way that is physical and spatial. The video works convene materials according to the silent rhythms and movements of the footage they contain.

Martine Syms: Fact & Trouble- another ICA show looks worth a visit

Martine Syms: Fact & Trouble


20 Apr 201619 Jun 2016

this show also looks really interesting-



Martine Syms, Lessons I-XXX, 2014


Fact & Trouble is an exhibition by American artist Martine Syms that examines the space between lived experience and its representation. Syms’s video series Lessons (ongoing), on view at the ICA, is a long, incomplete poem in 180 sections. Each piece is thirty seconds in duration and articulates a lesson from the tradition. One of these lessons is painted on the gallery walls. The videos use the idea of inheritance as a departure point, simulating the private-public unconscious of television shows, advertisements, animated GIFs, police cams, surveillance footage, Vines and other digitally-circulated formats.

The Inoperative Community at Raven Row


3 December 2015 – 14 February 2016

This looks like a really great, epic show at Ravel Row. If you don’t know about / haven’t been to Ravel Row gallery – DO IT! Their program is brilliant, and it’s a lovely building to hang out it too, a short walk from Liverpool street station.

This show is screening a vast amount of work- lots of which is not easy to see otherwise, and it’s free. I especially recommend checking out the work of Ericka Beckman

‘The Inoperative Community’ is an exhibition of experimental narrative film and video that address ideas of community and the shifting nature of social relations. It draws on work made since 1968 for cinema, television and the gallery, reflecting the overlapping and entangled histories of these sites.’

REACTOR at Zero Kline, Coma

Here’s something a bit more light- hearted at the cool little gallery run by that curious double act Pil and Galia Kolletciv  on

It’s a show by the  the rather extraordinary group called REACTOR – from Nottingham. Some of you may remember they visited us a couple of years ago?

They are bonkers- but in a good way. Especially if you are into Performance, Cults, Costumes, Sci- Fi

Tank TV online video show- New Group Materialism

Some interesting video work here to view online, especially if you are interested in a

“kind of artistic practice that through video mimics the production processes of advertising, TV and fashion – a practice that instead of opposing the corporate/institutional spectacle, flirts with its idioms and subverts its (commercial) objectives.”
