Another quick list of art works and events that The 405 has crossed its eyes over as of late. A treat especially for fans of the classic show, The Quatermass Xperiment, internet broadcasting and for those who like to have a dig at the television press.



Shows

Currently, at the Hackney-based gallery, Xero, Kline & Coma is a show that pays tribute to a classic BBC sci-fi series.

The artists' group, AAS, have built a set that tells a story of violence and allows its audience to interact with frequency readings on the monitors of the lab, which existed in the programme, The Quatermass Xperiment

The Cult of Quatermass will be open at Xero Kline & Coma every weekend until 12th February.

The new pop-up gallery in Tooting, known as Construction Gallery had its launch night last Wednesday, showing an installation in its main space by Alistair Mclymont, along with works from several emerging artists.

This is an incredibly inclusive gallery, with call-outs for submissions and writers' residencies for the duration of its existence.



Talks

Barby Asante, now showing an archive of the exploration of black music at the Peckham Space will be taking part in a free panel discussion in the east wing of the Tate Modern on 3rd February, staring from 18:45, discussing key themes that inform her work including black music within the broader context of collaborative practice. Needless to say, it's a must attend for all lovers of black music.



Collaborative Groups

Upon first impressions, LuckyPDF may strike some as a paradigm of the Nathan Barley multiverse. What's important however, is that they have created an exciting world of accessible internet broadcasts, creating platforms for many different artists and enabling them to work together.



Look At This!

We're going old school with this weeks recommended viewing, but it still remains one of the most important commentaries of the centralisation of television to date. From the resurrected JFK, asking the people of America if they've ever wanted to put their foot through a television screen, to the spectacle of a modified Cadillac driving through a pyramid of burning television screens, this broadcast video by Ant Farm is the staging of a media circus that used television to attack television. Please take a moment over your breakfast to view the full twenty five minutes of Media Burn.
