DJ Spooky: Getting Better?

  • 1 June 2017 - 14 June 2017

We’re living in interesting times.


But is it, as Paul McCartney sang, getting better all the time? Or is it a case, as a laconic John Lennon responded, that it “couldn’t get no worse”?


That’s what Paul D Miller, aka DJ Spooky, sets out to answer in Getting Better?


The Washington DC-born composer, artist and author will explore the question through a mixture of performance and an audio-visual installation. 


Working in collaboration with multimedia artists The Holladay Brothers to create a dynamic response to the Lennon and McCartney song, DJ Spooky will present an exhibition, featuring a multi-screen video and sound piece with rotating kintsugi sculptures, at FACT from 1-14 June.
