Whitechapel Gallery is transformed by over 70 creative and cutting-edge publishers for four days from Thursday 5 September.
From the snap of biting a carrot to the screech of dismantling a piano, this display explores the interest in music and sound amongst artists of the Fluxus movement.
For this commission, artists Eileen Simpson and Ben White (both b.1977, UK) collaborated with a group of young musicians and Spotlight Youth Centre in East London to produce a call and response that activates past, present and future sounds.
Celebrated novelist Tom McCarthy (b. 1969, UK) meditates on surveillance and control, and their malfunction and breakdown, in this free display of photography, sculpture, installation and film by artists including Steve McQueen (b. 1969, UK), Eve Sussman (b. 1961, UK) and Isa Genzken (b. 1948, Germany).
