anri sala - strange days: memories of the future
The exhibition Strange Days: Memories of the Future, is curated by Massimiliano Gioni, the New Museum’s Edlis Neeson Artistic Director, in collaboration with The Vinyl Factory. The exhibition will present the work of twenty-one acclaimed artists and filmmakers who have shown video works at the New Museum in its ten years on the Bowery.
Bringing together an extraordinary group of works in video by today’s leading artists, Strange Days will consider how images shape memories while anticipating visions of what the future may hold. Weaving together reportage and lyricism, the works on view blend images and sound into polyphonic, dreamlike compositions.
Massimiliano Gioni states, “We are thrilled to show in London some of the artists and works that have shaped and transformed the identity of the New Museum in the past ten years, since we moved to our new building on the Bowery. And it’s great to collaborate with The Store X and The Vinyl Factory, who have become such incredible forces in supporting artists in London and beyond.”
Alex Eagle, Creative Director, The Store X, says, “We are extremely excited to be partnering with both the New Museum and The Vinyl Factory to present this extraordinary group of works by some of today’s leading audio-visual artists. The exhibition challenges the audience whilst also being representative of our vision for The Store X, where we see ourselves very much as a cultural platform—presenting ideas and enabling creative and cultural exploration through experiences in our spaces that transcend the corners of art, music, fashion, design, food, and media.”
