LOCATION: The White Building

'Pyramid Schemes' is a collaborative exhibition organized by Lawrence Lek and The White Review to showcase a collection of short stories about real and imaginary buildings. Drawing inspiration from the work of Victor Hugo, Apollinaire and Jorge Luis Borges, the project invites forty-eight contemporary artists and writers to submit 100-word texts that explore architectures of their own creation.

For one night only, an immersive installation at The White Building in Hackney Wick will shape the collected texts into a panoramic cityscape. Please join us on Thursday 2nd May from 7-10pm to celebrate the spectacle of this fictional city. A limited edition of fold-out artists’ books will be produced to accompany the event.
