Dr Hairy in an Art Show!

Posted by admin on May 5, 2012

From June 16th until August 11th, the Dr Hairy videos will be featured in an art show entitled "Invisible Forces" at the Furtherfield Gallery in Finsbury Park, London.

Furtherfield is the foremost new media/digital art organisation in the UK, and I've been involved with them for a few years now. I've published quite a few essays and reviews on their website, but this is the first time I've been involved in one of their shows.

The press-release for the show says: "Our social, economic and cultural institutions are being dismantled. Control over the provision of social care, urban and rural development, education and freedom of expression, is being redistributed to private enterprise at a global level. Undeterred, the artists in this exhibition meet these challenges with clear eyes, spontaneity, experimentation and a sense of adventure. The resulting mix of installations, digital video, net art, painting and drawings deal with conspiracy, money, politics, hidden signals and frustration fatigue."

The Furtherfield Gallery is in a building called the Mackenzie Pavilion, which is a nice little red-brick building right in the middle of Finsbury Park. They're going to customise one of the rooms to make it look like a waiting-room (I've given them a lot of posters and leaflets to help them do this), and the Dr Hairy videos will be running in a loop on a monitor up on the wall.

Finsbury Park itself is directly across the road from the Manor House tube station, which is on the Picadilly line, so it's very easy to get there if you're in London. During exhibitions the gallery is open 12-3 p.m. Thursday-Saturday.
