Simon Denny at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), London
21st Mar 2012
Simon Denny has been included in the group exhibition Remote Control at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), London.
Remote Control includes a range of work by artists who explore the way television shapes contemporary culture, and also highlights a number of contemporaries who are responding to the mediums digital convergence. Coinciding with the digital switchover in the UK, the exhibition marks the end of analogue broadcasting—a milestone in the evolution of television.
The exhibition includes significant works that examine how television has changed the way artists engage with material and form, and how adopting techniques of television broadcasting has contributed to the deconstruction of traditional definitions of art. Exploring the role of television in the public sphere, many of the works presented in the exhibition challenge themes of gender, race, propaganda, identity, pop imagery and consumerism.
