Join artist group Antivoid Alliance for a public event at the outset of their four-day Making Space residency. Audience members will be invited to participate in a live Karaoke session before joining the artists to discuss the ideas driving the project.


Antivoid Alliance are interested in questioning the role of the audience in the context of contemporary art, and how the art experience can form part of a wider project for social change. At this work-in-progress event, the group will share some initial ideas around the artistic potential tied up in the cultural practice of Karaoke. Across the evening, invited guests and members of the public will be invited to perform with a bespoke Karaoke system. The performances that ensue will be accompanied by an improvised response from Butoh dance artist Yumino Seki.


The artist talk will be hosted by Liz Whitehead. As Co-Director of Fabrica, Whitehead has extensive experience of presenting a wide variety of contemporary art practices to a range of audiences. Bringing this knowledge to bear on questions of Karaoke and the social value of art, the discussion will touch upon themes of subversion and escapism—the critical agency of practices that operate at the intersection of joy, resistance, and art practice.
