Following the performances, we will be screening Video Show curated by Chris Coombes, Simon Raven will present his long awaited DJ set and Tether will serve a specially developed cocktail.

”What I hope is to evoke the idea that maybe it is all a fake, or a performance, like the things I’m talking about, but that is a peculiarly sharp way to get to something with which we can empathise.”

#May29 by Tether

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).

Image#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.

The event will be preceded by a live stream of a sold out discussion between graphic novelists Alan Moore & Melinda Gebbie, taking place at Nottingham Contemporary in relation to the James Gillray exhibition. The discussion will be presented on a large projection screen in the hall at Primary, 7pm.
