Richard Sides + Theo Burt @ The Nines, Jul 8

6 July 2015

As part of their ongoing collaboration, Richard Sides and Theo Burt take over Peckham’s The Nines with a back-to-back audio-visual set on July 8, at 7pm.

The unique event combines elements from the artists’ respective practices, forming one continuous live performance that combines Sides’s work as a multi-disciplinary artist and music producer with Burt’s computer sound, video and light.

The show, presented by Dissolve Specific Objects and The Performance Studio production and rehearsal space, takes place at The Nines on the Copeland Estate in Peckham, where The Performance Studio has recently taken up a new residence, creating a curated programme of performances, screenings, and talks on Wednesday evenings throughout the summer.

Richard Sides @ Kunsthalle Winterthur, Aug 23 – Oct 12

22 August 2014

Kunsthalle Winterthur is hosting the latest exhibition from London-based artist Richard Sides, titled don’t blow it in the vector, running from August 23 to October 12.

For his first Swiss show, Sides takes on the documentary genre with his work of filmic research centered around four contemporary electronic musicians – namely, York’s Theo Burt, Barcelona’s Roc Jiménez de Cisneros of EVOL, Rotherham’s Mark Fell and Milan’s Lorenzo Senni.

As Sides’s film installation unfurls both spatially and acoustically over all three of the gallery’s exhibition spaces, the four musicians are probed about not only their techniques and inspirations, but about the cultural idiosyncrasies that determine who adopts what music and why.

don’t blow it in the vector‘s opening reception on August 23 will feature a performance by Gregory Hari, which will be followed by a screening of Sides’s film in a two-day programme as part of ICA‘s Journal on September 6 to 7.
