Something you should see… Remote Control at the ICA

You may have noticed a dubious advertising campaign gracing your idiot box over the past months in which a mini robot/alien – AL to his friends – travels the length and breadth of the country to get us all clued up about modern technology and the broadcasting change over to digital. Yes, that’s right people, this is the last month to enjoy the Tube in all its old skool analogue glory! Thankfully, the curators at the ICA have recognised this monumental moment in history and are putting on an exhibition to lament the TV’s presence in the art world and beyond.

Curse or powerful tool? The TV has plagued and empowered the world no matter which side of the fence you are on – and the artists in this exhibition have all used it to explore this very fact. The Remote Control season has great works on show from ANT FARM, Harun Farocki, Adrian Piper and Dan Graham amongst many others. Accompanying the exhibition will be a series of talks and special film screenings that explore a whole host of exciting art and TV related areas, including art made for TV. A real insight into the small screen – not to be missed. (Words: Laura Thornley) 

Remote Control is on at the ICA until June 10th.  For more info, click here
