Material Archive: UKG Cosmology Mon 11 Mar – Fri 2 Aug 2024

An exploration of personal and collective histories from the UK garage rave scene of the early 2000’s, from Angel Zinovieff. 

This Material Archive brings together a collection of works made between 2014 and 2023. Reflecting on sonic, choreographic and social histories of the UK garage rave scene, it maps themes such as joy in collective movement, transcendence, madness, the power of the imagination and the division of time. Weaving both deeply personal and collective experiences, the work encompasses archival materials, video work, music and text. 

This exhibition is part of Artist Archive, a programme that questions what an archive can be and who gets to have one. 

Throughout the building

Daytime Drop-in

This Material Archive will be open for drop-in visits 10am – 6pm, Monday – Friday.
