Now, we have to ‘fess up. We still have yet to visit Leighton Space, the new gallery and studios just a few minutes’ walk from KT tube station. Yet here they are, already on their second (third?) exhibition, so this time round we’ve marked the calendar with a black pen -and promise to report back. In the meantime, here’s the blurb from founder Stathis Lagoudakis:
OBJECT ORIENTED is a group show of artists, philosophers and programmers who have been meeting up to share their thoughts on art objects, object-oriented programming and object-oriented metaphysics. The event will combine an exhibition, talks and one workshop.
