Original Cultures – The Showcase
In the London area this Friday (5th March)? Get yourself down to The Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane for the Original Cultures showcase at Corbet Place. Original Cultures – The Showcase is a unique one-hour audio/visual showcase of collaborative works created by seven artists from the UK, Italy and Japan in the four days prior to Friday as part of Original Cultures 2010. The artists are Ericailcane (IT), DEM (IT), Will Barras (UK) and Hiraki Sawa (JP) for the visual arts and Om Unit (UK), Tatsuki (JP) and Tayone (IT) for music.
In the aforementioned four days prior to the showcase, the artists will work in private workshops on brand new works. This is part of the concept by Original Cultures to encourage collaborations and working relationships which stretch the artists beyond their own respective areas of expertise and comfort zones. It’s impossible to predict the eventful outcome of such an experiment, but then that is indeed the beauty of the project itself.
Starting at 6pm with DJ sets from participating artists and Original Cultures team members, the actual showcase will commence at 8pm, with an after-party from 9-11pm. Oh, and did I mention that the entire evening is FREE?!
This will prove to be an exciting and extremely fascinating close to Original Cultures 2010 and I would advise you all to attend.
