The exhibition will collect immersive audio-visual works by 10 leading artists including Martin Creed and Jeremy Deller.

The Vinyl Factory and London’s Hayward Gallery have announced The Infinite Mix: Sound and Image in Contemporary Video, a collaborative exhibition of music-centric video art and installations.

Highlights include the UK premiere of Los Angeles-based artist and filmmaker Kahlil Joseph’s two-screen video installation m.A.A.d., which sets outtakes from Kendrick Lamar’s 2012 album good kid, m.A.A.d city to documentary footage of his native Compton.

British artist Jeremy Deller will also present a new collaboration with Argentinian choreographer Cecilia Bengolea, which centres around Japanese dancer Batty Bom-Bom’s participation in Jamaica’s annual dancehall competition.

Meanwhile, Stan Douglas has created Luanda-Kinshasa for the exhibition’s first room, which places the public in the middle of a recording session with a fictional 1970s jazz funk band in a replica of New York’s famed famed Columbia 30th Street Studios.

Frieze Artist Award 2015 winner Rachel Rose has also extracted vocals from Aretha Franklin’s Amazing Grace album using a spectrograph and combined them in a collage piece with footage of a space station and an EDM crowd in her piece Everything and More.

The Infinite Mix takes place in spaces above and below ground, and also features “hologram-like” installations alongside 3D projections.

The exhibition takes place at The Store, a new creative space at the Brutalist building 180 The Strand. It’s the Hayward’s only major off-site show to take place during the gallery’s two-year refurbishment, which began in September 2015.

Other artists involved in the exhibition, which runs from September 9 to December 4, include Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Cameron Jamie, Elizabeth Price and Ugo Rondinone.

The Infinite Mix will also be accompanied by a programme of live performances and events featuring artists and musicians featured in the show, which is yet to be confirmed. [via The Vinyl Factory]
