Jeremy Deller, who represented Britain in this year’s Venice Biennale, curates a new Hayward Touring exhibition All That Is Solid Melts Into Air. In this exhibition, Deller takes a personal look at the impact of the Industrial Revolution on British popular culture, and its persisting influence on our lives today.
The exhibition combines contemporary music, film and photography with a vast range of 19th century images and objects. Deller approaches this wealth of material like a social cartographer, revealing the ley lines of cultural history.
King Billy Sessions Folk Music
Performing in the cafe, musicians from Nottingham’s leading folk session will be performing a variety of traditional songs relating to the themes of working conditions, mining and lace that run through the exhibition.
A catalogue produced by Hayward Publishing will be for sale to accompany the exhibition.
