Indepth Arts News:

"News From Nowhere: Visions of Utopia"
2005-09-09 until 2005-10-31
Changing Room Gallery
London, , UK United Kingdom

News From Nowhere: visions of Utopia, a project created by Steve Wheeler of art-tracks, and being developed in conjunction with the London Borough of Waltham Forest, art-tracks and C[too]. A number of public sites in North East London, including The William Morris Gallery, a massive building site, a theatre surrounded by a moat, the Changing Room Gallery and more, will be the stage for installations, audio visual works, music performances and public art activities during September 2005. Chris Peterson, from Amsterdam, will show the installation 'My mind sounds like: Boo, Boo, Ba, Ba and ends with a void'.

Based on the title of the William Morris novel News From Nowhere, the project aims to re-examine the legacy of utopianism. The idealists of the 19th and early 20th century, believed passionately in the possibilities of radical social change, with visions of a future egalitarian world, a far cry from our post-modern, post-ideological times.

An International line-up of artists, musicians, writers and performers are invited to present their work in the context of the spaces provided. Collaborative work will be encouraged and composers from different countries have been asked to contribute to a jointly developed score.

Artists from former eastern-bloc countries will be invited to participate and bring to bear the first hand experience of living within a socialist state.

The events, works in progress and completed pieces will be documented and published on-line in the Visions of Utopia web site: www.art-tracks.net/projects.html . The site will also provide a global forum for open contributions, reports and sightings of utopia.

A newspaper, "News from Nowhere" will be published and distributed, including essays, documentation, interviews and the voices of local residents as well as those of the participating artists and organizers.

Chris Peterson has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2003. View more of his work at www.absolutearts.com/portfolios/c/chrispeterson/.
