Blending Images and Sound into Dreamlike Compositions
An immersive exhibition led by John Akomfrah, Kahlil Joseph and Pipilotti Rist transforms London’s The Store X, taking viewers on an audio-visual journey through its studio space in the Brutalist 180 The Strand. Twenty-one artists’ work will feature in the polyphonic exhibition, presented by The Store X, in partnership with NYC’s New Museum and The Vinyl Factory. Strange Days considers how images shape memories while anticipating visions of what the future may hold, weaving together reportage and lyricism, the works on view blend images and sound into dreamlike compositions. Many of the installations will be making their UK debut in the exhibition, which is curated by Massimiliano Gioni, the New Museum’s Edlis Neeson Artistic Director, in collaboration with The Vinyl Factory. John Akomfrah, Jonathas de Andrade, Ed Atkins, Cheng Ran, Camille Henrot, Kahlil Joseph, Hassan Khan, Ragnar Kjartansson, Oliver Laric, Klara Lidén, Maha Maamoun, Daria Martin, Laure Prouvost, Lili Reynaud-Dewar, Pipilotti Rist, Anri Sala, Mounira Al Solh, Cally Spooner, Ryan Trecartin, Wong Ping, and Wu Tsang, these are the artists that take the visitors on a journey of memories and future. Some of the most compelling video artists and filmmakers that have presented works at the New Museum over the last ten years, are brought together for this exhibition, shifting the ways we think about images and memory by recasting their individual experiences and visions.
