Internationally renowned artist, architect and designer, Ron Arad, will bring his critically acclaimed immersive 360˚ installation Curtain Call back to the Roundhouse as part of our 50th anniversary celebrations.
Curtain Call is brought to you by Bloomberg Summer at the Roundhouse, an annual season dedicated to introducing new audiences to innovative culture, returning for its fifth consecutive year.
The epic floor-to-ceiling artwork made of 5,600 silicon rods suspended from an 18 metre diameter ring, will once again fill the Roundhouse’s main space and provide a canvas for films, live performance and audience interaction.
Playful, original and brilliant
Striking in its scale and tactility
Arad is reinventing the curtain experience for 2016 by inviting brand new collaborators to work with him including: Kutiman; Daniel Landau; Marshmallow Laser Feast and Universal Everything. Returning from Curtain Call’s critically acclaimed run in 2011, will be: Babis Alexiadis; Mat Collishaw; Ori Gersht; Greenaway & Greenaway; Gabriel & Shira Klasmer; Christian Marclay; Javier Mariscal; SDNA and David Shrigley.
Walk in, penetrate, cross the moving images to get inside the cylinder. You’ll be engulfed by images –a captive, but also a creator. It’s amazing what exciting things happen on both sides of the curtain.
