While the Hayward Gallery’s exhibitions have come to a standstill as the London institution undergoes a two-year makeover, its only major off-site project starts with a bang across the river. The Infinite Mix: Contemporary Sound and Image, which opens today (until 4 December), is a group show of ten video works with a particular emphasis on the soundtracks.
Among the works on show is Cyprien Gaillard’s 3D film and audio installation Nightlife (2015); OPERA (QM.15) (2016), a holographic projection of the artist Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster performing as the soprano singer Maria Callas; and Kahlil Joseph’s dual-screen m.A.A.d. (2014) made in response to, and using, the music of the hip-hop artist Kendrick Lamar.
The exhibition has been organised in collaboration with the music and arts organisation The Vinyl Factory, and is spread across three floors and a car park at The Store, 180 The Strand.
