One Day, On Demand

Matt Stokes – Long After Tonight

Have you seen the exhibition at Nottingham Contemporary at the moment – The Universal Addressability of Dumb Things? No, me neither. However, the chaps at One Thoresby Street have gone one better and this week sees the opening of their new exhibition idea. As a  response to The Universal Addressability… their new show is called OD.

OD alludes to on demand TV and to an overdose of information created via constant additions to mass media content. (Or, as I might put it, there’s just not enough time to watch everything on YouTube.) Therefore nine artists have been invited to display a video work of art for one day and one day only.

The films focus on hypnotic and alluring responses to the moving image, ranging from the contrast of youth culture and clubbing to television and the accessibility and meaninglessness of internet content.

Each artist’s work will be open to the public 12-6pm and there will be a soft launch for each new work 6-8pm each day.

The artists are:
