The show is “the rst of a chronicle of gallery takeover shows” at the commercial space on Harlesden High Street and is run collaboratively by assembling a mix of artists and projects. Midnight Cinema features a number of guest works by Bora Akinciturk, Ayçesu Duran, Lara Joy Evans, Roxman Gatt and Jon Arbuckle, among others. 

The exhibition looks at various modes of cultural indoctrination found within contemporary video gaming and mainstream music, and also looks at the rise of nostalgia for older forms of entertainment, like A/V and VHS. It also has an interest in exposing the exhibition itself as “a mechanism for coping with the vulnerability of the artistic self by repurposing cultural layering into new forms of content.”**
