I'm doing some guest curation for the Visualise public art initiative at the Ruskin Gallery in Cambridge.
New Media Curating members may be interested to see the forthcoming exhibition by Liliane Lijn working in collaboration with Jamie Allen using the almost surround high definition digital screens at Gallery which opens on Tuesday 17th January at 6.00 pm. Their show, Caution Matter, examines the intricate and often overlooked relationship between industry and mythology through the lens of art and is timely in its documentation of spaces and places often invisible to the public eye - places of privatised production and manufacturing counterposed in their placement in a digital space in receipt of public art funding.
Liliane and Jamie's show will run through to 26th January. There's more happening later in the year including launch of a new Art and Science circle on 31st January and a show called 'Poetry, Language, Code' opening on 21st June.
On 17th also we're having a free night of Fluxus inspired performances with voice, radio, toy cars etc. Performers include Liliane and Jamie, Iain Pate, David Ryan, Michelle Lewis-Smith, Tom Hall and Julio d'Estrivan. It's part of a series of 50th birthday of Fluxus events.....Liliane will perform her ART INDUSTRY text from 1967!
As part of the wider programme also we're delighted to announce we have collaborated with Nick Lambert of the Computer Arts Society to curate a series of computer art and art/science related moving image works which are back projected onto two large screens in a vacant shop in Cambridge city centre: you can see these at 5-7 Sussex Street until 3rd February. Artists works being shown include early computer artworks such as The Flexipede by Tony Pritchett (1967) and Finite Elements by Alan Kitching and Jan Crow. Documentation of The Senster is also there as well as the amazing Halls Curtain by Paul Brown and Chris Briscoe (1982) and recent work by Ernest Edmonds as well as luminous works by Liliane Lijn and Susan Aldworth.
