People Like Us will perform The Mirror as part of the festival TUSK NORTH in Newcastle on Saturday 4th March 2023 – more details here. We recommend buying tickets for the entire festival if you’re able!
The first edition of the new ‘Intangible’ festival, takes place from October 27 to November 6 2022 in Lleida, focuses on creative arts and welcomes British multimedia artist Vicki Bennett as a special guest. It includes the solo exhibition MIND MAPS: THE ART OF VICKI BENNETT which first showed at Sheehan Gallery, Walla Walla earlier in 2022.
People will have the opportunity to delve into Bennett’s creative universe with a solo exhibition, as well as enjoy a conference at Lleida CaixaForum gallery and an audiovisual performance of The Mirror live at Espai Orfeó. The event’s artistic director, Antoni Pinent, said that Intangible offers “a wide range of activities” aiming to reach different types of audiences and not only art experts. The festival “wants to be informative but reflective and critical at the same time,” he added.
Pleased to say we have another performance lined up (in person again!) of The Mirror, our first in a couple of years since it had to default to screenings recently.
A theatrical screening of The Mirror by People Like Us will be part of Cover Versions, a group exhibition in Sunderland, UK:
A Group Exhibition Curated by Anthony & Graham Dolphin
4 April – 1 May 2022
Abject Gallery, 27 Fawcett Street, Sunderland, SR1 1RE, UK
Preview: 1 April 18:00–22:00
Opening times: Wednesday – Saturday 11:00–16:00
Cover Versions is a group show curated by brothers Anthony and Graham Dolphin exploring notions of the original and its copies, echoes, and mutations in art, film and music. An original artwork is often used as the starting point of new creative acts. It can be re-purposed, subverted and reclaimed by artists, musicians, and fans. The exhibition addresses concepts of ownership, fandom and audience, authenticity, and the economic and cultural values that site and shape them.
The exhibition features internationally acclaimed artists, musicians and film makers from the UK, the USA, Australia, Japan, and Austria with newly commissioned work alongside key examples of their established practice.
We regret to tell you that we’ve had to cancel performing at Keroxen on 4th December 2021 because of pandemic/travel related issues. We hope to be able to do this when the situation is safer and easier.
