ica off site hits digbeth to celebrate birmingham subculture
The exhibition coincides with Selfridges Live + Loud festival with Just Jam this weekend, so get down to Birmingham quick!
It's the first time the ICA have hosted an Off Site event in Birmingham, and it looks set to be a classic, with a galaxy of Brummie-born creative stars making works for the event. Taking over a disused industrial warehouse in Digbeth, the exhibition will take in works by Palace graphic artist Fergadelic, photographer Tyrone Lebon, artist Ben Sansbury, filmmakers Tim & Barry (from Just Jam) and designer Ashley Williams.
Tyrone Lebon will present new work featuring images of local people around Birmingham, interspersed with Lebon's family photographs and the late 90s designer Christopher Nemeth's family, who live in the city.
Ashley Williams will present a site specific installation of prints from her latest collection, in a space displaying related objects and a film collaboration with Palace Skateboards' founder Lev Tanju.
Tonight, Just Jam will present live performances from electronic musicians based in the Midlands and the UK including Barely Legal, Crack Stevens, Scratcher and Tsunga. Get down there!
