Frieze week: Cory Arcangel at Lisson Gallery

Posted by Rise Art on 11th October 2011

Yes! Tonight, as part of the "Frieze week", Cory Arcangel will open his first solo show for Lisson Gallery, titled 'Speakers Going Hammer'He is one of our favourite artists and we are excited!

'Speakers Going Hammer' is a phrase used for describing speakers pushing too much bass and it comes from the single by rap artist and Youtube sensation, Soulja Boy. In the exhibition Arcangel looks at popular culture and celebrates the cycles of taste which dictate the high-tech, the forlorn, the passé, and the soon to be passé. He highlights increasingly brief lifespans of technology, fashion and media, blending high and low production techniques in the creative process.

The show opens tonight at Lisson gallery, London, and it will run through the 12th of November.
