Rhythm and Disappointment launch @ Chalton Gallery, Jul 31

29 July 2016

East Anglia Records is launching a new compilation, Rhythm and Disappointment at London’s Chalton Gallery on July 31.

The album, featuring Benedict Drew, Ziad Nagy, Katarzyna Perlak, and Ruth Waters, among others, will become available for download on the night at the East Anglia Records bandcamp. There will also be performances at the gallery by Leo Nibz, Madeleine Stack, Nadja Voorham and Mark William Lewis in rooms designed by Fred Duffield and Ulijona Odišarija.

The music label and self-proclaimed ‘originator’ of the term ‘Rhythm & Disappointment’ (R&D), founded by artist Harry Bix, began as a series of music performance nights at Slade School of Art in 2015. The project, revolving around the notion of “wanting more and giving up”, has since put on a number of other events and released a handful of compilations, including one in parallel with the NO SCREENING performance at London’s ICA in collaboration with with artist Cristine Brache and SOUNDS LIKE.

Autocorrect Ruined my Life @ Chalton Gallery, Jul 13

11 July 2016

MA/MFA Slade Fine Art Media Presents group exhibition, Autocorrect Ruined my Life is on at London’s Chalton Gallery, opening July 13.

Featuring the work of current Slade School post-graduates, Hazel Brill, Jessica Bryant, Rosie Carr, Eom Jeongwon, Yorkson and Ziad Nagy amongst others, and opening its press release with “Siri? Siri? Seriously?” the show intends to lean on the “theatrical and the synthetic”, presenting works and moods that are characterised by a “drastic oversatement [sic] of an underwhelming narrative, played out for you via the mediums of performance, sculpture and screen based works”.

Autocorrect Ruined my Life seems to follow a particularly active and self-organised period of time for the degree course at the London art school. Also involved and showing in the group are Georgia Lucas-Going, Natalie Kynigopoulou, Francisca Aires Mateus, Michela De Nichilo, Katarzyna Perlak, Jamesthian Rollo and Adam Wozniak.
