About this event:
The prevalence of media, images, and visual cultures saturate our collective psyche on a near-minute basis. We have become a culture inundated. Our phones alert us to groundbreaking news events daily as we open Instagram to consume others’ lives and are sold the world of excess.
We eagerly divulge into celebrity gossip, following the conspiracies of every supermodel-turned-influencer. We have been born into the spectacle and have watched its demise.
We are no longer shocked, bemused, or excited.
The spectacle is dead.
Long live the spectacle.
Join us for an exhibition featuring London-based artists and their response to the concept of the death of the Spectacle.
The opening night for the exhibition is Thursday, 27 July, from 18:00-21:00. The show will remain in this space Friday, 28 July and Saturday, 29 July, from 10:00-17:00.
