fabric presents…
fabric are incredibly proud to curate the music for the evening; with help from a selection of artists who have tackled the expansive theme of Chronology.

Alexander Nut B2B Josey Rebelle (Movements In Rhythm DJ set)
fabric have invited two of their favorite DJs to approach the theme literally, with Eglo Records boss Alexander Nut and Rinse FM’s Josey Rebelle traveling through a selection of music from the ‘60s right through to that of the present day. 

Lee Gamble (Live)
As an artist who’s made a name for himself by reworking classic breakdowns from old jungle tape packs, the PAN signed Lee Gamble is fast becoming recognised as a master of musical re-appropriation. He will create a one off live set especially for the event, tackling the Chronology theme in his own precise and specialist way. 

Craig Richards (DJ set)
As a resident at fabric since the club’s inception, Craig Richards, possesses a unique take on fabric’s own chronology, having played week in, week out for 13 years. fabric invites him to present a musical take on the future.

Sound Art by Mark Peter Wright
London based artist Mark Peter Wright has created two original sound works in response to artwork in the new BP Displays.

Room 1970
In response to Susan Hiller's: Dedicated to the Unknown Artists (1972-76), Wright has built a work titled 305 Seconds at Sea. The composition is built from 305, 1-second sound recordings of the sea. Assembling the fragments in non-sequential order, the piece disrupts linear notions of time.

Room 1990
In response to Damien Hirst's: The Acquired Inability to Escape (1991). The work, titled A Faint Glimmer, responds specifically to the 45mm gap that allows a passage of air between Hirst's cell structure. Composed entirely from recordings of air ventilation shafts in and around London, the piece echoes the cells themes of claustrophobia, surveillance and presence.

Projection by Clay

North Duveens
Witness a real time projection of imagery and light by Jae Huh at Clay who responds to the chronological arrangement of artworks throughout the galleries. Not only will it reveal the progress of time throughout the evening, it will also change in appearance and styling drawing from artist motifs, visual imagery and the architecture of the gallery.


Round Table: Representation in art 
Pull a chair up to the Round Table to discuss representation in art, hierarchy of power and whether art has brought about change? Paul Goodwin chairs the discussion throughout the evening with Megan Pickering from Tate Collective and special invited guests Dusty 0, Kimathi Donkor, Sara Shamsavari and Tracey Moberly.
