A new solo exhibition by artist, programmer and self professed hacker Cory Arcangel – who is also a stand-up, musician and co-founder of record label/hacking collective Beige – comes to the Lisson Gallery in October to present works previously unseen before in the UK.
Best known for altering video games, music videos and general digital anarchy and agitation, his work has evolved by re-appropriating digital tools and systems including Photoshop, YouTube, and GarageBand.
An open source ethic means his pieces are accessible online to anyone and through instructional videos people can create their own versions of Arcangel work – all in the name of questioning authorship.
Archangel’s show runs from 12 October – 12 November at the Lisson Gallery 52-54 Bell Street, NW1
