TESTING GROUND : A MINUTE AGO
Jan 18 - Feb 25, 2018
Performance and curating MA students from CSM explore ideas of the moment – how we experience, process, communicate and reconstruct the temporal and ephemeral – through live art and moving image works from the Zabludowicz Collection.

360: THE VIRTUAL REALITY ROOM
throughout the year
Throughout the year, Zabludowicz Collection will be presenting Virtual Reality works in a dedicated environment. 360 gives a unique opportunity to see how artists are experimenting with this new technology in increasingly ambitious ways, creating immersive experiences that defy the conventional logic of film and video and evoke visceral sensations. Artists include Rachel Rossin and Jordan Wolfson. Further details of the programme will be announced in early 2018.

ERICKA BECKMAN
Mar 22 - Jul 8, 2018
American artist Ericka Beckman presents four seminal works spanning 30 years of genre-defying film making in her first major solo exhibition in the UK. Beckman’s work consistently treats film as a performance medium, and astutely anticipates the social and cultural impact of video gaming and online networks over recent decades. Beckman’s films create narratives using the pedagogic and competitive structures of games. They playfully reveal the conditions of gender and identity formation in relation to labour, leisure, architecture and capital.

MARIANNA SIMNETT
Mar 22 - Jul 8, 2018
British artist Marianna Simnett creates fable-like film, performance, sound and light installations that examine the sense of intimacy yet anxious unfamiliarity we experience with our own bodies. She particularly focuses on the means we deploy to control these bodies, both technological and cultural. The exhibition presents a group of recent work: three films The Udder (2014), Blood (2015), and Blue Roses (2016) – installed as a trilogy for the first time – alongside a sound and light installation Faint with Light (2016).

Jun 7 - Jul 8, 2018
Peter Burr is a New York-based artist working in VR, video, games, installation, and performance.
Commissioned by Rhizome and co-presented by the New Museum as part of their First Look: VR exhibition, Arcology, 2016 builds on Burr’s collaboration with games producer and writer, Porpentine. It takes its title from a 1969 book by Paolo Soleri Arcology - The City in the Image of Man, which proposes a series of revolutionary utopian visions of arcologies - new communities that are based on organic and biological systems. Burr’s interpretation transports the viewer into a dense labyrinth in which inner and outer space become indistinguishable.

360: JEREMY COUILLARD
Jul 12 - Aug 12, 2018
The Founders of Daytona Beach Also Founded Dayton, Ohio
 
Jeremy Couillard has developed a new work that builds on his characteristic exploration of alien life forms and out of body experiences using the interactive and competitive structure of computer games to build narrative.
 
Within this new work, the users’ disembodied awareness floats wherever you look (no controllers needed). You search for random syllables hidden among surreal creatures in order to create a unique word that, when said out loud, will give you back your body. The whole thing can take anywhere from 10 - 30 minutes.
 
Couillard's digital-inspired works are often glimpses of the artist's varied experiences growing up in a tech-driven society. His compositions are made up of miscellaneous objects, spaces, and are imbued with a psychedelic colour palette that evokes cyber-culture in all its manifestations.
