Date & Time
Tickets & Pricing
Using works from Surrey Art Gallery’s permanent collection, this multimedia installation captures the intersection of televised news, entertainment, and culture in the early 1990s.
Central to the exhibition is a recent acquisition, Machine in the Garden, by the late Nancy Paterson. Other artworks complement the theme of media spectacle found within Paterson’s work, such as Michael de Courcy’s two-sided printwork TBA-TV Calendar/Sulphur Pile. On Air demonstrates how different artists over time and different geographies explore the ascension of mass media culture in their own practice.
