8pm–10pm: Alannah Chance will be playing electronic oddities by female pioneers from early radiophonics through to afro disco and the sounds of 70s New York. Alannah is a DJ and radio producer who leads the production team on Radio 3’s Late Junction, the home of esoteric music and adventurous listening on the BBC. Before that she worked at BBC 6 music making long form features and has produced a series for NTS radio.
10pm–12 midnight: Tabitha Thorlu-Bangura will be playing her “dreamlike dance music, with a focus on new offerings and weird invocations”. TTB is DJ and radio host from Freetown by way of Camberwell. She champions the most forward-thinking music from the global underground, focusing on artists from diverse backgrounds making new sounds. She’s also one of the brains and hearts behind the leading music platform NTS Radio.
Kathy Rae Huffman Archive Reading Room
Curator Kathy Rae Huffman’s career spans the 1970s to present day, supporting artists to test the expressive qualities and materiality of technology including experimental video art, new media art, net.art, and cyberfeminism. Huffman’s collection of rare books and catalogues, donated to Goldsmiths Library, came to Res. during the summer of 2016 as a resource for artists and writers to develop new projects that will be realised in a programme at Res. in late Spring 2017. The Reading Room remains open for appointments until 1st of October.
The Kathy Rae Huffman Reading Room is curated by Res. in collaboration with Goldsmiths Library and Special Collections, staff in the Visual Cultures department, and Curating MFA.
Project supported by The Goldsmiths Research and Enterprise Committee [REC] Fund 2016.
