Wysing Polyphonic debuting its record label of ‘many voices’ at ICA, Mar 23

20 March 2017

The Wysing Arts Centre is launching new record label Wysing Polyphonic at London’s ICA on March 23.

The evening will feature a performance by the first project on the label Ectopia (Adam Christensen, Jack Brennan and Viki Steiri) who work with words, cello and synth. There will also be performances by N-Prolenta, xname (Eleonora Oreggia) and SIREN

The new label is an extension of the art institution’s annual music festival, and will further evolve to include a recording studio, built in the summer of 2017, as well as residencies where Wysing will commission new works in recording and broadcasting for artists and musicians. The 2017 theme, ‘Many Voices’ will work with artists to “explore a diversity of contexts and positions to help better understand the role of art, artists, and arts organisations such as Wysing, at this moment of global political change.”

Keren Cytter @ ABContemporary, Nov 4

4 November 2015

Keren Cytter will present her new show SIREN, curated by Olga Stefan at Zurich’s ABContemporary, on November 4.

Her second appearance at the gallery, the Israel-born and New York-based Cytter is recognised primarily for her experimental video works, which shed light on the private and the interpersonal realms through the appropriation of templates drawn from cinema, literature and the media. New film, ‘Game’, will form the centrepiece of this new show, with older films ‘Siren’ and ‘Ocean’ also being featured.

The artist’s most recent solo show was presented at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, while ‘Metamorphosis’, her latest film was shown at this year’s Transformation Marathon.
