This Event is co-curated by De La Warr Pavilion and Project 78
At Project78, we will be dividing the gallery in half, with some performances taking place in an open ‘white cube’ space and others within a specially constructed ‘black cube’. These small spaces will host live bands, a performance lecture on infinite economics, artist films, DJ’s and more. With space for only about 10 lucky audience members within each ‘cube’, a live internet video-stream will be sent to Kino Teatr’s cinema/gallery/bar which is situated just a few meters away on the same street. Screenings will also take place in New York and Paris venues, in similarly sized black cubes. Alongside this the video stream will be viewable online at DLWP.com and the DFA record label site.
Over the last 2 years, with the generous support of the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, the De La Warr Pavilion has produced a groundbreaking programme of interdisciplinary one-day live arts events under the ‘Dear Serge’ moniker.
Named in tribute to the forward thinking architect Serge Chermayeff, the Dear Serge programme has stayed true to the spirit in which the iconic building of de la warr pavilion was conceived. Presenting and promoting the very best in new, cross-disciplinary and experimental art from the UK and beyond, over 24 months they have commissioned and supported over 50 early career artists.
