The Infinite Mix

9 Sep - 11 Dec
The Infinite Mix, Hayward Gallery's pop-up exhibition, takes place at The Store, a new creative space located at the iconic Brutalist building on The Strand.The exhibition brings together audiovisual artworks that are soulful and audacious in their exploration of a wide range of subjects. In all of the works in this exhibition the interplay between moving image and sound is crucial. Most of the artists have composed, commissioned or remixed soundtracks that relate to the visual element of their work in unexpected ways, and ensure that what you hear is just as important as what you see. 

The Infinite Mix includes works that address tumultuous histories and cultural tensions in ways that are thought-provoking as well as deeply entertaining. They also pointedly remix our notions of history and fiction, the real and the staged, and the sublime and the everyday. Drawing on varied genres including documentary filmmaking, music video, experimental film and theatrical performance, these artworks dispense with straightforward storytelling and unfold in a manner akin to musical compositions. Together, they expand the ways in which we experience moving images and sound, and open up new veins of meaning in art's potentially 'infinite mix.'

The Infinite Mix exhibition is presented in association with The Vinyl Factory.
