Hello people!I am joining in a contemporary artist, David Blandy's Live Weekend exhibition at ICA, London.
I'll be taking part of Fan Art section, also doing manga portraits.
Please come along as there are screenings, music, and a Street Fighter IV tournament!
Thursday 6 May: David Blandy
From Midday 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
and Turntablist DJing, alongside a record market and cosplayers. Features live music from Infinite Livez, King Cannibal, turntablists DJ Phaze, DJ Shorty, DJ CutWild, g-man and Priority Deluxe, music stalls from Ninja Tunes, Rough Trade, Soul & Dance Exchange and Flashback, hardcore fighting game tournament organisers Neo Empire and cosplayers The Rebel Legion and Heroes Alliance UK. Plus a screening of Damon Packard's fandom-tinged film work via Artprojx.
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 using 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.
