Artist David Blandy, alongside Newlyn Art Gallery curator Blair Todd, will lead a tour of The Exchange’s new exhibition, Citadel.


The exhibition is formed of two contrasting immersive installations, both statements on global culture’s impact on the individual. Hercules: Rough Cut scrutinises empire, civilisation, London and language in a hypnotically rotating, mutating installation of video and the voice in the darkness. The bright pseudo-library of the Fortress of Solitude is a self-portrait made of the detritus of consumer culture, Blandy’s personal archive of popular culture that formed him now exposed for visitors to explore.
