Concrete Mirrors is an exhibition about the ethereal, the intangible and all things invisible.
The 26 artists that are part of this show explore ideas of desire, expectation and faith, in different times, through the spectrum of their personal experience, observation and discourse. The exhibition title takes its cue from the Acoustic Mirrors that were built prior to the invention of radar. Early warning systems against the possibility of an airborne invasion, the Acoustic Mirrors pointed their faces to the sky collecting sound in giant concrete dishes.
What is an Artbook is now available to buy at Tate Modern bookshop, just navigate to the Art Theory section.
We are very pleased to invite you to the Launch of the publication What is an Artbook?

15c Osborne Street (alley behind the Whitechapel Gallery)
An Art Book today can be seen to occupy various different positions including that of a piece of theory, a catalogue, a printed exhibition, a piece of art in itself, a supplement to a pre-existing piece. It can be a proposal for the future or an examination of the present or what has passed. “What is an Art Book?” will be an investigation of what an Art Book is in terms of material and conceptual concerns. This is an on going collaborative project that will be produced during the Artist Books Weekend held every year at The Mews Project Space. Artists, writers, curators, designers and other practitioners are invited to respond to the title of the project by contributing their interpretation of what an Art book means to them and their practice. Each contributor can propose text, drawings, photographs, sculpture, performance, audio recordings, video or any other concept/theory as long as it can ultimately be realised in A4 paper format and in black and white.

ILLUSION OF THE SPECTATOR

“The contemporary art space is a space in which multitudes can view themselves and celebrate themselves… in a way that assists them in reflecting upon their own condition, offering them an opportunity to exhibit themselves to themselves.” Groys, B, Going Public 2010 p.63
Are we as readers and visitors to contemporary arts spaces aware of ourselves?
The spectator’s experience of a work of art is, in the most part, dependent on what they bring with them and what they understand about the work but the spectator is much more then a member of a momentary group that go to see this thing, then move over there and observe that thing; they are a community. The position and power of the spectator as implied by the work of art has been a central question from the time of Denis Diderot, and has been regularly contested from Roland Barthes essay The Death of the Author to Michael Fried’s call for the passivity of the audience.
As the art world moves in to a new stage of social and political change this exhibition will once again pull focus on the spectator that Boris Groys describes as a self-aware community that has already been conditioned by the art world’s numerous emancipatory and participatory projects. This community has already accepted its participatory role, actively welcomed its new authorities, and is ready to reject or accept any denigration offered. This exhibition then will re-examine the position and power of the spectator by looking at what has caused this preoccupation with the spectator, the work of art and the artist; and ask whether these new forms of encounter empower or denigrates the audience.
The artists selected for this exhibition create artworks, interventions and projects that use, as a fundamental part, the spectator in three distinct categories, the spectator as a participant, the spectator as a community, and the spectator as subject matter. These will serve as active interlocutors to continue this discussion through the duration of the exhibition.
To accompany the exhibiton there will be a publication which we are very pleased to say that will feature the voices of:
Dave Beech | Sam Basu | Mark Grist | Matthew Stock | Tom Trevatt
18th June 2012 7pm
A panel discussion hosted by Matthew Stock with Dave Beech & Tom Trevatt will debate the themes and concepts put forward by the exhibiton; especially the spectators encounter with the art object and new platforms for art.
This show is one third of a series of shows that will take place at Angus Hughes Gallery from June to July 2012.

SLUICE is both exhibition space and platform for discussion and creation. Featuring an open layout for expansive installations, performative works and screenings including a multifaceted supporting programme consisting of a preview breakfast, panel discussions, art-making educational activities for children and young people and artist publishing bookstands.
Primarily (but not solely) focusing on artist run not-for-profit spaces, SLUICE does not wish to be didactic but rather provide an informal and accessible temporary platform for young galleries and project spaces to exhibit their artists’ work, gain exposure and encourage dialogue between artists, curators and audiences.
Located in central London, a few minutes walk from Bond Street Underground station. Running over the weekend of 15-16 October with late opening and free entry SLUICE is designed to enable access to all. SLUICE will serve as a punctuation point to the London Art Fair week.
SLUICE is organised by the London based artist Karl England and curator Ben Street.

Snowball - Kim Kielhofner, Christine Boudreau et Alain Lefebvre à articule
Snowball is a program of video works by local and international artists. These videos are brought together under the theme of landscape, and the myriad of possibilities of the term.
Uncovering the term "landscape" in art and cinema, mapping our social engagements, and challenging our notions of frontiers are some of the territories explored in the program. The screening will be in the articule courtyard, which will be transformed into a theatre with benches of snow and surrounded by pine trees. The screening will be accompanied with the launch of a small publication. Artists working in the moving image were invited to contribute the publication and reveal the "hidden" side of their practices and join other artists working with image and writing to further explore their research.
Projection / Screening :
Patrick Dyer, Funa Ye, Jenny Lin, Zohar Kfir, Kandis Friesen, Kim Kielhofner, Katherine Melançon, Joana Roberto, Elénore Saintagnan, ASM Kobayashi, Marianna Milhorat, Frédéric Lavoie
