This Hideous Replica

Lifting its title from a 1980 song by The Fall about a reclusive dog breeder whose ‘hideous replica’ haunts industrial Manchester, this experimental project— a concoction of artworks, performances, screenings, workshops, a ‘replica school’ and other uncanny encounters—adopts monstrous replication as a tactic, condition and curatorial framework for exploring algorithmic culture, simultaneously alienating, seductive and out-of- control.

Curated by Joel Stern and Sean Dockray.

Featuring Joshua Citarella, Debris Facility, Heath Franco & Matthew Griffin, Liang Luscombe, Mochu, Diego Ramírez, Masato Takasaka, Anna Vasof and more.

23 August—16 November
