Opening: Tomorrow is never enough

August 26, 2016 @19:00 - 21:00 CEST Opening

About

Tomorrow is never enough is an exhibition predominantly exploring the politicized content of newspapers. The exhibition will bring together a collection of works from Amelia Beavis-Harrison’s newspaper series where newspapers are used as a score or script for performance. The exhibition will show both artefacts of performance, and remnants of enquiry as the space contains costumes, video, performance and collage.

The new performance Personality Papers will be performed at the opening at 20.15.

The piece explores the visual break down of text through creating performances scores as collages. The reading of the collages become a play where different newspapers interact with one another, often referencing the same material but through different politicized vocabulary.
The exhibition shows the new film Citizens Advice which responds in real time to the questions being asked on a daily basis about welfare and support in the UK, a country dictated to by an intolerant and unsupportive, class divided, government. A four person jumper worn by performers in the work No New News will also be present in the exhibition.
