We are looking for artists’ moving image work for the exhibition Altered States which will take place in The Crypt of St John’s Church as part of the Waterloo Festival in June 2018. Exhibiting artists will include members of The London Group, invited artists and those selected in this open call.

LOCIS, Bryan Benge

The theme for this year’s Waterloo Festival is ‘Transforming Minds’ and inspiration for this exhibition is taken from the 1980’s science fiction film, Altered States, where a scientist explores new levels of consciousness using mind altering drugs. Interpretations of this title are multiple, but could include psychological change, changes in society/technology that lead to changes in thought/perception and changes in people’s relations and subjectivity with the world (perhaps through an encounter with art).

Altered States will be curated by The London Group members David Theobald and Genetic Moo.
