Event description

Description

Exactly fifty years after the legendary 9 Evenings: Theater and Engineering, Arts Catalyst revisits this hugely influential art event with a new performance commission by Robert Whitman. Whitman, a participating artist in the original 9 Evenings and co-founder of Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T) who produced it, presents Side Effects. This spectacular evening of performance will mix pre-recorded and live-streamed moving image from across the city, animated by a live performance unfolding over eight acts in the ex-industrial space of The Crossing, Kings Cross. An accompanying exhibition will be held at Arts Catalyst Centre for Art, Science & Technology.

This event is supported by Arts Council England, Cockayne – Grants for the Arts, The London Community Foundation, PACE, Afterall, Central Saint Martins, UAL, King’s Cross and Goldsmiths, University of London.

The mirror grew out of Robert Whitman’s involvement in optics.
