Art - Exhibitions The Universal Addressability of Dumb Things Curated by Mark Leckey 27 Apr 2013 - 30 Jun 2013

This spring we will present a major exhibition curated by Turner Prize-winning artist Mark Leckey, Leckey’s largest exhibition to date. The Universal Addressability of Dumb Things brings together an unusual and exciting selection of historical and contemporary works of art – including William Blake, Louise Bourgeois, Martin Creed, and Richard Hamilton – alongside videos, mechanical objects and archaeological artefacts, which he will unite in specially designed environments. It will explore how our relationships with artworks and common objects alike are transformed through newinformation technologies. This produces an effect Leckey calls ‘techno-animism’ – the sense that inanimate objects have come to life.

Meet in the entrance hall/shop at 2 o'clock.  I suggest that we look around the exhibition and then meet up again in the cafe downstairs at around 3 o'clock.

This meetup is also on the City and Country Explorers calendar.

    I am a bit curious about art. I am not really passionate but it is a way to find out more. Se you there.

    It looks like there's going to be a big group of us hitting the Contemporary tomorrow - at the moment we have 19 'yeses' here and another 14 on the City and Country Explorers site, although some people have RSVPed on both.
    I will be in the foyer/shop area at 2 o'clock. I will sit on the long bench next to the window, which is where I usually wait for those people who've been to one of these events before.
    I'll be wearing a green velvet jacket, and I have shoulder length auburn hair, so should be easy to spot! See you all tomorrow :-)
