Barbican LATES: Off Modern

24 November 2011


Time: 6.30pm–midnight

Takes place in Barbican Foyers & Gallery Events Space

This November, South London artist collective Off Modern take over the Barbican with a multi-media LATES night inspired by the Art Gallery’s architecture exhibition OMA/Progress .

Taking place throughout the Foyers, Art Gallery, as well as the Centre’s labyrinthine corridors and public spaces, visual and performance artists, filmmakers, designers and musicians engage in deconstructing the spatial experience and architecture of the Barbican, and mapping futuristic scenarios.

Highlights include…

James Bulley and Daniel Jones

A sonic sculpture that sources sound fragments uploaded to the internet to create a score of infinite chord variations from the collected data.

Live From Distant Shores
Lewis Teague Wright
Lakeside, Level G
Live CCTV feeds from desolate ports and jetties have been compiled into a video projection, providing mysterious glimpses of nautical terrain.
