Future Shock

28 Apr-28 Aug 2022


An immersive exhibition featuring UK and world premieres from Actual Objects, object blue, Lawrence Lek and a host of pioneering artists.

Fact and 180 Studios are excited to present Future Shock, a major new exhibition of 14 leading international artists and collectives working at the cutting-edge of audio-visual technology.

Future Shock, which opens at London’s 180 The Strand on 28 April and runs to 28 August 2022, transforms 180 Studios’ subterranean spaces through mesmerising and pioneering digital technology – from generative and interactive algorithms, AI and 3-D digital mapping, to spellbinding laser work, holographic projections and ground-breaking electronic music.

Including numerous UK and world premieres, Future Shock features 14 pioneers at the apex of sound and vision who are redefining space to create a new kind of artistic experience, including Ryoichi Kurokawa, Caterina Barbieri, Actual Objects, United Visual Artists, GENER8ION (aka Romain Gavras and Surkin), Gaika, Tundra, Ben Kelly & Scanner (aka Robin Rimbaud), NONOTAK and object blue & Natalia Podgórska. Weirdcore will present a brand new commission with an original soundtrack from frequent collaborator Aphex Twin, while Floating Points will provide an original score for an installation by Hamill Industries. Lawrence Lek will also present a new 180 Studios commission featuring a score by Hyperdub founder Kode9.
