Joseph Wright, "The Alchymist, in Search of the Philosopher's Stone, Discovers Phosphorus, and prays for the successful Conclusion of his operation, as was the custom of the Ancient Chymical Astrologers". 1771. Possibly based on the discovery of phoshorous by Hennig Brand, whom Patrick Miller has devoted a work to as part of Tribute Night (it's the one with the fog machine). Not visible - the 5000 litres of urine that Brand boiled down to find it.

Give Me something to listen to

Posted by Gemma on the 20th of March, 2012

One night only at OK Gallery:

Lauren Brown presents Give Me Something To Listen To, an open invitation listening party for two. GMSTLT formalises the intimacy and potential awkwardness of sharing music: armed with only a set of headphones, Lauren is ready to listen to whatever you're willing to give.

"Choose something for me. Is it insightful? or punishing? Does it tell me something about you? or something about me? For that three minutes, or 30 seconds, we will be connected by what i'm listening to and what you imagine i'm listening to. Like a single-moment mix-tape, Give Me Something To Listen To is a shared moment between artist and audience, and between fellow listeners."

Bring your songs on Wednesday, 21st March.
6PM to 9PM
