An auction taking place from a secret room inside Mike Nelson’s Coral Reef, songs about potato smiles and classic Hitchcockian suspense all feature in the latest event produced by Tether, live from the Caretaker’s House at Primary Studios and live online.
The event takes place on May 29, the date Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Empire (1453), the first annual meeting of the secretive Bilderberg group took place (1954) and Dennis Hopper died (2010).
#May29 places diverse happenings or ephemera into a non-linear format. Tether have invited Birmingham Art Zine to present a new performance alongside Les Malheureux, a unique collaboration between flash fiction writers David Gaffney and Sarah-Clare Conlon.
The event also includes the first UK presentation of work by Mavis Enron of California, a screening of a recent live performance from John Walter at Vanilla Galleries, DJ sets from Hello Thor & Simon Raven and a brand new cocktail created to celebrate the occasion.

From the Caretaker’s House. Episode 1
Featuring Dave Charlesworth
Four years ago, the world was startled by the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics, arguably the most impressive visual spectacle of modern times. But amidst the rockets fired to create the perfect weather, the digitally composited footstep fireworks and that ugly child with the perfect voice being hidden away in a broom cupboard, there emerged an element of deception that only became apparent because of mankind’s fondness for suspicion.
On 24 April 1558, Mary, Queen of Scots married François, the Dauphin of France. On 24 April 1704, the first newspaper in the United States, the ‘News-Letter’, was published in Boston, Massachusetts. On 24 April 1967, Vladimir Komarov became the first human fatality during a space mission in the Soviet spacecraft Soyuz 1.
On 24 April 2012, Tethervision will launch Caretakers House, their latest series live at Primary in Nottingham and also streamed live online.
Wake – the first programme in the series features a performance of ‘A Struggle Told 5 Ways’ by London-based artist Dave Charlesworth.
With the analogue to digital switchover, the kindle and the iPad, we are entering the final stages of the inevitable transition to a new, non physical materialism. Wake will mourn this slow passing of the analogue and look to the coming years to be spent with it’s new, energised replacement.
Are all curators failed television presenters? Are all artists failed celebrities? Are all TV-quizzes intrinsically absurd? Is contemporary art a failed joke?
During October, November and December, Tether will be producing and hosting three episodes of Sideshow’s own art-themed game-show, Black Swans, which will quiz invited contestants and engage them in action-based tasks. Taking inspiration from every TV quiz show under the sun, from Blankety Blank to Pat Sharpe’s Fun House through Shooting Stars, Black Swans will be filmed before a live studio audience, hold regular team captains and reoccurring rounds; all designed to deconstruct the game-show format and celebrate the quirks and curiosities of contemporary art.
For those who want to be part of the studio audience, all places are free, but limited, so booking is required. BOOK HERE
Episode 1 – 29th October, 6pm
Host: Duncan Allen
Team 1: Niki Russell (C), Sarah Farmer, Jermaine Edwards
Team 2: Rob Blackson (C), Jon Burgerman, Sian Robinson Davies
Special guest: Bruce Asbestos
The quiz will also be available in an edited format via Tethervision: a free online “television channel” run by Tether, one week after filming, and indefinitely after that.

final chance to catch Stuart Croft – Drive In at The Wasp Room and Alia Pathan – Empty Vessels at Max
In September 2009, artist collective Tether embarked on a road trip across the UK to visit and interview the many artist‐led galleries, arts initiatives and collectives in cities as far and wide as Dundee, Birmingham, Bristol, Brighton & Liverpool, learning about the practises and activities that have determined and defined each group’s development, their hopes for the future, and the lessons learnt along the way.
These interviews will now form a series of short documentary programmes, Hither & Thither, that will be available for free through Tethervision, an online television channel focusing on video art and videos about art.
The aim of the project is to achieve an honest representation of independent art activity in the UK in the lead up to British Art Show 7, which will launch in Nottingham in October 2010, and the independently run fringe festival, Sideshow, in which Tether and other artist‐led groups will be taking part. The interviews will be released daily between September 14th and October 21st: the day before Sideshow begins.The programmes serve as a snapshot of the current boom in artist‐led activity and independent gallery culture in the UK, creating an overall picture of trends and experiences, hopefully informing future debate on the British art scene, as well as acting as an informative resource for aspiring artists for years to come.
