October, 2016

Arts Catalyst, London

This day long event has arisen from a month long collaboration between a group of students from MA Art and Science at Central Saint Martins, UAL, and recent graduates from Goldsmiths and Farnham. The group came together as performers in Robert Whitman’s new commission ‘Side Effects’, produced as part of Arts Catalyst’s current season ‘9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering Revisited 1966/2016’.

Cryptic, Art and Science

‘Cryptic – Art & Science’ is an innovative show bringing together the work of 15 international artists and scientists from the Central Saint Martins’ Postgraduate Art programme.

Side Effects by Robert Whitman

Robert Whitman co-produced ‘9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering’ (nine events held between 13–23 October 1966). From this experience in collaboration Whitman joined engineers Billy Klüver and Fred Waldhauer and fellow artist Robert Rauschenberg to start Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) Exactly fifty years after, Whitman is producing a new work, which I am performing in.
