Harry Smith Anthology Remixed
Alt.Gallery, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK
8 May – 30 June 2007
The exhibition aims to create a visual representation of the Anthology of American Folk Music edited by Harry Smith. Artists have been selected who reflect the ethos of the Anthology and whose practice may explore processes of patterning, systems, music, alchemy, anthropology, social change or a ‘folk’ identity. We are interested in creating an archive to continue the collective history and human experience of the Anthology, as seen through the eyes of contemporary visual artists and musicians.
The exhibition has been organised in consultation with Rani Singh of the Harry Smith Archives and is a companion exhibition to the Harry Smith exhibition at Reg Vardy Gallery in Sunderland UK which runs from 1st May – 8th June 2007.
