Hayward Gallery, in association with The Vinyl Factory, presents its only major off-site exhibition during its two-year refurbishment.
Taking place at The Store, a new creative space at 180 The Strand, “The Infinite Mix” brings together major audio-visual artworks from ten leading international artists.
Both soulful and audacious in their exploration of wide-ranging subjects, these works foreground the role of sound whilst expanding the nature of our encounter with images. Spanning a range of approaches and formats from cinema-style 3D video to hologram-like projections and multi-screen installations, the works in the exhibition address us in ways that are conceptually as well as emotionally immersive.
Most of the works mix the conventions of documentary filmmaking with unexpected and inventive approaches to layering images and sounds. Structured musically, rather than as linear narratives, they present new possibilities for how the medium of video can engage us in exploring the poetics as well as the politics of music, performance and history.
“The Infinite Mix” presents UK premieres of audio-visual artworks by leading international artists Martin Creed, Jeremy Deller with Cecilia Bengolea, Stan Douglas, Cyprien Gaillard, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Cameron Jamie, Kahlil Joseph, Elizabeth Price, Ugo Rondinone and Rachel Rose.
