City Escape & Escapade

Mon Jul 25, 2005 00:00 - Fri Jul 22, 2005

City Escape and Escapade
Saturday 30 July 2005, 12.30 - 8.30pm, ICA Theatre
One-day symposium hosted by the London Consortium
Curated by Louise Hojer and Ricarda Vidal

The city is often regarded as a concrete, hectic jungle from which it is difficult to escape and where play is limited to late afternoon drinking. Here we invite speakers who demand recognition, transcend city walls, re-mythologies forgotten corners and create alternative realities.

City Escape and Escapade brings together artists, curators, writers, theorists, extreme athletes and gamers who all make the city their playground.

Featuring: Robin Priestley (Space Hijackers), curatorial practice B+B, Stewart Home, Sebastien Foucan (Parkour), Iain Sinclair, theorist Christine Atha, Matt Adams (Blast Theory), net artist Vuk Cosic, theorist Oliver Grau and Tim Etchells (Forced Entertainment)
