And / ORDER Exhibition...

LCMF are a group of ever-rotating but essentially consistent young artists working across all mediums.   After two successful exhibitions at Kraak Gallery over the last year-and-a-bit, the group are moving into new territory, building upon previous explorations of humanness and ideas of the uncomfortable with new a exhibition. ‘And/order’ is a collection of pieces that trace the tangential lines of language, (dis)order, systems, time, birth and noise – as well as other less easily articulated concepts.   ‘And/order’ will feature new work from Joe O’Rourke, Nathan Caldecott, Jamie Hammill, Sarah Lynch-Jones, Amy France, Sarah Entwistle, Caitanya Fletcher-Towler, Caelan Knight, Lucy Holt, Sam Kelly and Alex Leigh. They are a group of predominantly art students from Manchester who live, study and practice in cities all over the UK but take every opportunity to work outside of the University-lead programme.   Expect film, photography, painting, sculpture, installiantion and all sorts.   LCMF Presents: And/order runs for one night only, on Wednesday 29th July in Kraak Gallery, Stevenson Square, Manchester. 5pm-10pm. Free drinks.   @LessComMoreFun Facebook:...

Expressions

This includes fragments from our lives displayed via poetry, drawings, paintings, photos and different installations that use modern technology. The idea is to share and connect, inspire and motivate; not to inform, but to stimulate and allow whatever creativity that flows inside us all to come out. There are no rules, and we invite our friends to contribute as well. This is our madhouse. Welcome to Expressions. Afterparty: There will be an afterparty on the opening day, 17th December, with drinks and lots music from Dj Eddie Louie blasting from the speakers so we can get rhythmically moving as well.

David Grubbs

Tuesday 10 June, 7.30pm David Grubbs Solo performance + Reading from Records Ruin The Landscape Tickets £7 advance from wegottickets and See Tickets http://www.seetickets.com/event/david-grubbs/kraak/789300/ http://www.wegottickets.com/event/273508  The Third Programme and Buried Bones are proud to present a solo performance and reading by Drag City recording artist David Grubbs, founding member of Gastr del Sol, Squirrel Bait and Bastro. David has collaborated with Will Oldham, Royal Trux, Jim O’Rourke, John Fahey, Dirty Three, Matmos, Richard Buckner, Tony Conrad, Pauline Oliveros and Arnold Dreyblatt, and played in the bands Codeine, The Red Krayola, Bitch Magnet and The Wingdale Community Singers (in collaboration with Hannah Marcus and the author Rick Moody). He is also Associate Professor in the Conservatory of Music at Brooklyn College, City University of New York, where he also teaches in the M.F.A. programs in Performance and Interactive Media Arts and Creative Writing. In short, he is a Louisville legend! His most recent solo record, The Place Where The Palace Stood, was issued last year on Drag City, and he is currently touring in support of his new trio album with Andrea Belfi and Stefano Pilia, Dust & Mirrors. “Dust & Mirrors combines tonal minimalist repetition with hanging cadences of back-porch guitar and Grubbs’ sung-spoken poetry. The Headlock reshapes a riff that could fill stadiums. The album is unashamedly beautiful, but never banal; fiercely intelligent, never obscure.” – Stewart Lee, The Sunday Times David has also recently published a book titled Records Ruin the Landscape on Duke University Press: “John Cage’s disdain for records was legendary. He repeatedly spoke of the ways in which recorded music was antithetical to his work. In Records Ruin the Landscape, David Grubbs argues that, following Cage, new genres in experimental and avant-garde music in the 1960s were particularly ill...

Mnemonic

Mnemonic – Aiding or designed to aid the memory.Photography for us is just that; a platform for us not only to aid memories but to share memories. We as photographers have a curiosity about the past, which enables us to make the future. The work considers the importance of memory as well as introducing a discussion of why, how and when do we choose to remember. Likewise there is a choice between photographic tools. Do we keep or destroy, human or machine, analogue or digital. We will fuse these together and create a journey for you.
