Da, Da, Da: Fountain Of Age 30 September – 11 October Carmon Colangelo An exhibition of mixed media prints combining lithography, silkscreen, intaglio and digital printing created in 2002 by Carmon Colangelo, Director of Lamar Dodd School of Art, University of Georgia, USA. The title is a play on the desire for eternal youth and the end games of the 20th century. “Colangelo's work is about the relativity of our own cultural assumptions. Ethnographic objects, pop culture, religious icons, and cartoon like figures of his own imagination populate his dense compositions. Visually seductive, his work is meant to open us to the possibilities of looking and interpreting the world around us,” writes Louis Shaw, Curator of the Georgia Triennial.

Maratone 7–11 October Installation Performance by Vergil Sharkya’ Vergil Sharkya’ will perform a five-hour set of digital compositions in the 68 Hope Street Gallery on five consecutive days. Each day, an excerpt of Sharkya’s characteristic, 3D-sonic structures will be re-recorded in the performance space. The recording will be processed and fed back into the performance on the following day. With each feedback cycle, the sonic properties of the performed soundscapes will become more closely related to the acoustic properties of the gallery space.

Exhibitions and Events at Liverpool School of Art and Design Graphic Authorship– Artists In Print 14 –18 October Exhibitors include: David Crow, Paul Davidson, Marion Deuchars, Jonathan Hitchen, Neil Morris, Gary Mouat, Russell Mills, Alan Murphy, Henning Wagenbreth, Ian Wright In recent years a new breed of Graphic Designer has challenged the conventional view that their work is a neutral conduit, a noise free transmission of a message determined by their client. This exhibition provides a showcase for the Graphic Arts research group at Liverpool School of Art and Design and their international associates. The exhibition also provides a platform for the artists to explore the notion of authorship outside of any commercial constraints, by bringing their own content and personal themes to a body of work produced in the print studios at Liverpool School of Art and Design.

Tracing Lines Through A Debris Field 28 October – 1 November Installation by Phil Mouldycliff and Julian Lees This is the latest in a series of installations by Phil Mouldycliff and Julian Lees examining the relationship between indeterminacy and conjecture. In this multi-disciplinary piece the Debris Field is made up of the vestiges of both artists' working methodologies. Using elements of sound and visual imagery accrued over the past twenty years, the two artists orientate through the fragments of their original work in order to reconstruct a hypothetical ‘whole’. Over the period of the show a number of wall and floor pieces will be developed which create pathways through the accumulated material, choked though it is, with the silt of degraded memory.

Backwaters 11 November– 22 November Soundworks by Mr. Campbell Backwaters is a series of sound recordings designed as an invitation to the listener, an invitation to join the artist at various locations along the time line, in between the memories. A journey through the backdrops of life, foraging around the inconsequential, penny tray sounds found between the events that punctuate daily life. Each recording is a snapshot, a framed forgetable moment, a pause, an examination of the narrative taking place in the backwaters of the bigger picture.

A Fitting Moment 11–15 November Installations by John Newton, Rachel Newton and Mathew Gregory Performance by Mathew Gregory – Thursday 14 November The Junction Pools Trilogy Part III: A Maze in Greece John Newton The work on view comprises full scale paper patterns and wooden patterns, architectural details of an evolving control structure. The Trilogy centres through mixed metaphor on the salmon, the species of fish, but also as the name of a Second World War submarine, the HMS Salmon, built in Cammel Lairds Shipyard and sunk off the coast of Norway. Each phase of The Trilogy, from 1990 to the present, has had a significant collective element built into it. When in collective mode, the aim of The Trilogy is to provoke a contemporary oracle. Carried by its migratory instincts, the ‘Salmon’ traverses the globe, a product and mirror of its age. Post 2002: Once built, the vessel/accumulator will be held in readiness for combinatorial exercises.

White Cochin/Burka Blue, 2002 John Newton

A Window of Appearances Rachel Newton Cloaking the present day architectural detail of the 68 Hope Street Gallery with a pre-painted second skin, this formal abstraction seeks to create a new, illusionary architecture of rhythmic pictorial space. Echoes of the original architecture, a neo-classical colonnade, emerge from this coloured network. Playfulness and fantasy evoke memories of other times, other spaces. Though an independent work in progress, the Window of Appearances will naturally provide a context for the vessel under construction, the illusionary latticed wall acting as a trap or an escape from the maze.

Rhosydd, 2000 Rachel Newton


Ode to the Ballad of a Thin Man Mathew Gregory Ode to the Ballad of a Thin Man is an audio installation, developed from a series of works which seek, in some small way, to engage with the complexities of selfidentity, and the covert expression of personal neurosis. Compiled from a series of recently performed four-hour improvisations, the composition symbolically juxtaposes layers of guitar-induced drones and repetitions; ...an act made in isolation, and the inevitable chain of events; ...the undulation of consequence from a single point; ...isolated whispers, multiplied and mutated with the cycle of time. By approaching improvisation as a process of cause and effect, the piece seeks to explore the illogical distortions of neurosis, culminating on Thursday 14 November with a live four hour improvisation performed within the space of the installation.

My First Electric Toy, 2002 Mathew Gregory

Impression 19–22 November Exhibitors include: Xue Zhi-Liang, Chen Zeng-Hao, Zhang De-Ming, Dai Ming-De, Zhou Guo-Bin This exhibition presents forty art works from eight artists of the College of Fine Arts, Shanghai University.

Visiting Fellow: Ben Patterson 29 October to 1 November Ben Patterson, born 1934 in Pittsburgh, PA, USA, was a pioneer of the Fluxus movement. After nearly twenty years of studies in the classical music tradition (Piano, Violin, Double-Bass, theory, composition and conducting) and a brief four-year career as a professional, classical double-bassist, he became an ‘overnight’ convert to the aesthetic, soon to be named Fluxus… to be exact, after his first meeting with John Cage in Cologne in the summer of 1960. Since then, Ben Patterson has created a varied body of work in various media: sonic, plastic, language, video, psychology, performance and ‘other’…(visit http://nutscape.com/sub-conscious/ to learn about his Museum for the Sub-Conscious). Ben Patterson's professional activities from 1963 to 1989 also included his posts as General Manager, Symphony of the New World, New York; Director of Development, Negro Ensemble Company; Professor and Chairman, Department of Performing and Creative Arts, Staten Island Community College, New York; and Deputy Commissioner for Cultural Affiars, City of New York.
