Juxtaposition

Juxtaposition
an exhibition of contemporary collage and video art
at
The Museum of Club Culture, Hull
Suite 5, Bond 31, 42 High Street, Hull, HU1 1PS.


Launch Friday 17th June 6pm - 8.30pm
Continues weekends until July 10th 11am - 4pm
On a summers night in 1916 in a small nightclub called The Cabaret Voltaire in Spiegelgasse Zurich, the subversive and irreverent literary and anti -art movement called DADA  was born.

Dada was an international movement fueled by disgust for the causes and horrors of the First World War, they challenged the conformity of social, political and cultural values of the time. Working to redefine art Dada swiftly spread from Switzerland to Berlin and New York where instead of painting many Dadaists worked in the mediums of collage, assemblage and photo-montage. Creating visual puns they cut up and mixed random fragments of texts, photographs and found objects.

Hugo Ball wrote the DADA manifesto delivering it at The Cabaret Voltaire in July 2016, 100 years later The Museum of Club Culture celebrates the enduring legacy of the Dadaist provocateurs and their diverse artistic output of art, poetry and performance with  ‘Juxtaposition’ (the fact of two things being seen or placed close together with contrasting effect) which  is the first  exhibition in our cross- media Cut Up and Mix programme of interventions by artists from around the world taking place in Hull during 2016 and 2017 Hulls year as UK City of Culture.

Evoking the spirit of DADA the Juxtaposition exhibition will include collage, assemblage and sound and video art from artists including:
Michelle Thompson, Martin O’Neill, Paul Burgess, Austin Von New, Mark Wigan, Louisa Minkin, Gordon Dawson, Priya Sundram, Kerry Baldry, Chris Harper, Marcel Craven, Michael Szpakowski and more
