[An exhibition about why contemporary life is so difficult for so many]
16 June 2012 - 11 August 2012
Please join us for the Opening Event on Saturday 16 June 2012, 2-5pm
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.
As we scan our cultures for maps, role models, possible ways of living in today‚Äôs world, we often encounter images of society that are created by its hidden, controlling forces. By naming, revealing, tracking, playing, making, subverting and transforming tools, circumstances and figures that give rise to current crises we enlarge the debate and extend our freedoms. And the artists in this exhibition offer examples of just some of the ways in which this might be done.
Free public play, games, making and discussion run alongside the exhibition.
Led by Dave Miller, The Hexists, Class Wargames, Olga P Massanet and Thomas Cade Aston. DETAILS: http://www.furtherfield.org/programmes/event/invisible-forces-events
