Hayward Gallery has opened a major audio-visual exhibition with the Vinyl Factory. The Infinite Mix will be held at the Store, a new creative space at 180 the Strand.
Featured works include British artist Jeremy Deller and Argentinian choreographer Cecilia Bengolea’s dancehall film Bom Bom’s Dream; Dominique Gonzalez Foerster’s hologram-like projection of Maria Callas; Cyprien Gaillard’s 3D projection Nightlife (2015); and Stan Douglas’s fictional 1970s jazz-funk recording session Luanda-Kinshasa.
For the launch of the exhibition Hayward gallery director Ralph Rugoff said: “Rather than being driven by linear narratives, these works are structured more musically and seek to engage us on an experiential level. At the same time, almost all of these moving image works draw on conventions of documentary filmmaking. Yet instead of trying to provide an objective record, they often pointedly remix our notions of the real and the staged.”
