Modern Art Oxford & Jericho Tavern presents: You and Whose Army? on Tuesday 6th November 2018
Modern Art Oxford and Jericho Tavern present You and Whose Army?, an evening of artist performances which use experimental sound and musical subcultures as a point of departure to interrogate the socio-political and economic factors faced in Britain today.
Taking it’s title from the politically driven song by Oxford based band Radiohead (who played their first ever live performance at Jericho Tavern in 1986 under the then name ‘On A Friday’) each performance seeks to rally our collective conscious and question the factors contributing to the increasingly difficult relationships faced in British society today. Be it the ever widening distribution of wealth, controversial economic policies or the financial instability faced after the EU referendum, through to the rising cultural tension and racial discrimination being experienced on the streets of Britain, the reality facing Britain is one of palpable uncertainty and historic change.
Benedict Drew will use various instruments, electronics and syncs to produce a ritualistic experience that attempts again to bring an end to the Tory government and rock music.
Hardeep Pandhal will deliver a live reading of rap lyrics. Pandhal’s performance forms part of his continued practice exploring cultural identity in British society today.
Jeremy Pritchard (Everything Everything) has curated a specially selected playlist in response to the themes of the evening, which will be playing throughout the night. The playlist will also be available through Modern Art Oxford’s Spotify profile.
Please note that this event is 18+. It will take place at Jericho Tavern, 56 Walton St, Oxford, OX2 6AE.
Music Genres: Electronic, Indie, Rap
