Art Night is London’s largest free contemporary arts festival. Each year the festival partners with a leading cultural institution and curator, focusing on a different area of London to explore its distinctive identity, culture and architecture through various forms of art.

Cécile B. Evans will present Amos’ World is Live at Spectrecom Studios, as part of the final episode of a three-part video and installation work titled Amos’ World (2017- ongoing). The performance adopts qualities of live-audience television production to open up the process of narrative construction and world-making to a rotating cast of visitors. Throughout the night, Evans and her team will be live taping scripted scenes in front of the public, using set pieces, performers (including puppetry) and a chroma blue screen. Amos’ World is inspired by the lived reality of networks and the built environment, with the first episode showing as part of an installation at Art Basel 2017, Castello di Rivoli (Turin), and mumok (Vienna). An installation with all three episodes will premiere at Tramway in late fall 2018.

Genesis are proud to have produced backdrops to support Cécile’s event using our Direct to Media UV Printing service.
