Live art interventions take to the streets… From East to the BARBICAN

Curated by Something Human

With thoughtful reflections on democratic uses of public space, artists as citizens, explorers and activists utilise digital streaming and connectivity to playfully re-configure our understanding of the city.

Enacting ceremonial processions, tracing alternative routes and activating dead spaces, the artists cross the City thresholds into the historical and financial heart of London, to join an exciting live art programme at the BARBICAN.

In the surrounds of this iconic labyrinthine space, visitors are invited to explore new territories re-mapped by digital projections, online technologies, performance installations, and intimate interactions.

Presented as part of INTERFACES, in partnership with Fish Island Labs and the Barbican.

Boedi Widjaja, Edgar Oliveira, Lynn Lu, Marta Angelozzi, Richard DeDomenici, Speaking of I.M.E.L.D.A., Teow Yue Han + RAW Moves + London Contemporary Dance School, Yoko Ishiguro (+ Nathalie Czarnecki, Anna Pickles Harvey, Elenor Hellis, Hannah Millest), and Yuri Pirondi in collaboration with Ines Von Bonhorst, Alexandra Baybutt + Bitch “n” Monk
