Saturday Slow-Preview: John Powell-Jones: Cyberjunk

16 October 2021 / 12:00-17:15pm

This Saturday Slow-Preview is an opportunity to pre-book a timed visit with additional restricted capacity in the gallery, so you can enjoy our new exhibition John Powell-Jones: Cyberjunk at your own pace.

Capacity is limited. You can pre-book your free ticket on eventbrite HERE

CYBERJUNK takes place on the planet Durt 1,000 years after the Quantum Crash: a botched experiment that saw the first humanoid quantum teleportation result in a disaster of apocalyptic scale. 

John Powell-Jones’ first major solo exhibition CYBERJUNK includes: 3D and 2D animation, life-size characters, a comic book, ceramics and tufted wall hangings. His work is informed by the ways in which dominant ideologies and power structures influence our perceptions of reality. Powell-Jones aims to form a dialogue with our present and an imagined dystopian future in which the horrors of capitalism and neoliberal ideology are present as cyborgs, demons and maggots.

– To maintain access for all, the wearing of face coverings will be mandatory, unless a person is exempt for reasons related to their age, health, or disability, at this Saturday Slow-Preview event.
