POP UP RECORD SHOPS

Thursday 6th May @ the Institute of Contemporary Arts.

As part of the free event ‘Live Weekends’ – conceived in collaboration with guest producer David Gryn

We will be hosting a pop-up shop showcasing the range of rare, sought-after, and top-selling Soul & Dance records available across our shops.

The Live Weekends project at the ICA – http://www.ica.org.uk/24597/Seasons/Live-Weekends-May-2010.html

David Gryn presents the weekend 6-9 May, the first date of which, ‘Choose Your Character’, is curated by David Blandy.
Choose Your Character. see the My Philosophy trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_5qOWK-_BTE

Thursday 6th May

David Blandy’s day at the ICA “Choose Your Character” will celebrate a variety of different fan-behaviours and sub-cultural obsessions that reflect the artist’s own passions. Including rooms featuring a Street Fighter IV tournament, Turntablist DJing alongside a record market, and areas dedicated to Star Wars fandom featuring members of both the 501st and Rebel Legions in costume, the day will feature a special screening of Damon Packard’s fandom-tinged film work and live DJ sets by artists from the iconic Ninja Tune record label, including Infinite Livez.

David Blandy lives and works in London, using video, performance and comics to address identity formation and its relationship to popular culture. Blandy searches for his cultural position in the world, often useing humour to ask just how much the self is formed by its immersion in the world of records, films and television, and whether the answers to life’s questions can be found in these mass-produced objects.

He has exhibited at venues such as The Bluecoat as part of the 2008 Liverpool Biennial, Turner Contemporary, Margate, The Baltic, Gateshead, Spike Island, Bristol, 176, London, Artprojx Space, Platform China Project Space, Beijing, and Museu da Imagem e do Som de São Paulo, Brazil and at various international screenings by Artprojx. His work is distributed by LUX.

MVE will be there as part of the record market.
