After the phenomenal success of last year's audio-visual extravaganza 'The Infinite Mix', 180 The Strand will be playing host to another behemoth of a group show. It'll all be themed around a quote by experimential artist-musician John Cage, who said: 'Nowadays everything happens at once and our souls are conveniently electronic (omniattentive)." Which, okay, doesn't exactly reveal loads. But with folks like psychosexual animators Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg and tricksy conceptualist Ryan Gander involved, we're expecting something pretty grand.
Please note the exhibition will run from October to December, but dates and times are provisional and TBC.

Underwhelming and lacks the power of the Infinite Mix. A few great pieces, a lot of a filler and way too many people using the whole place as a giant selfie studio. I know Time Out like to bang on about how Instagrammable everything is, but spare a thought for people who actually like to experience the art rather than use it as an opportunity to show off on social media. Don't tell me to move out of the way, because your narcissism is less important than the art. Rant over.
Not quite as breath-taking as The Infinite Mix, but that show had the surprise of the space too. This show is more varied, and has some definite highlights, including the mind-melding dark matter 'bell' by Anish Kapoor, a brilliant new work by Richard Long, and a thoughtful installation by Shirazeh Houshiary that makes you realise, in case you didn't, that humans of differing religions (and none) have more in common than we thought. Check out the movie on the roof too!
