The Universal Addressability of Dumb Things Opening Event

A Hayward Touring exhibition curated by Mark Leckey

26 Apr 2013

6.30 - 11pm
Galleries open until 9pm

Join us for the launch of our new exhibition The Universal Addressability of Dumb Things, curated by Turner Prize Winner, Mark Leckey.

This exciting exhibition presents a variety of works from leading artists, alongside traditional museum objects in the very different setting of a contemporary art gallery. Part history, part fantasy, the exhibition groups a range of artworks and objects, including a giant inflatable cartoon figure of Felix the Cat, a medieval silver hand containing the bones of a saint and a Cyberman helmet replica, into four key themes - the body, animals, automotive and monsters.
 
The official launch is followed by a party until 11pm, featuring a DJ set by Stephen Mallinder (ex-Cabaret Voltaire), a real-time electronic sampling performance by Charles Gershkovich and a DJ set inspired by the exhibition and Leckey’s 1999 work Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore by NikNikNik, a resident at the unmissable House of Trax. A limited number of complimentary drinks courtesy of ABSOLUT Vodka (FCFS).
