8pm - 1am
The final Friday evening of the exhibition takes its cue from Leckey’s 1999 work Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore – a compilation of found footage from UK underground music and party scenes of the 70s, 80s and 90s. The cavernous Space at Nottingham Contemporary will be transformed into a nightclub and television broadcast inspired by dance music culture, trends, branding, digital aesthetics and notions of euphoria.
COCKTAIL is an immersive environment that merges fashion and branding with performance and technology, smoke and mirrors, podiums, sculpture, scent, tailored tracksuits and cocktails. Featuring electronic music by Rokk (Body Talk), Dirty Talk and Lovers Rights, COCKTAIL will also feature artworks by Romany Dear, Joey Holder, Candice Jacobs, Samuel Levack & Jennifer Lewandowski, Zephyr Liddell, Calvin Sangster & Tim Hattrick, Joey Villemont, Zoe Williams and Lucy Woodhouse.
This event also features an online component - please visit Its Our Playground on 28 & 29 June only to view the exhibition.
Curated by Candice Jacobs in collaboration with Zoe Williams & Lucie Akerman, this version of COCKTAIL forms the second in a series of events by Williams & Akerman, the first of which was held at the Motorcycle Showroom in Bristol, 2011.
