The cottage has become romanticised to the point of being kitsch and newly constructed tower blocks are punctuating our skylines. In a country where streets of terraced houses are boarded up for demolition in one city, but sold for over a million pounds each in another, panellists debate whether architects should preserve the past or if it’s time for a housing revolution.
WEDNESDAY 6 MAY
6:00 PM – 9:00 PM @ ROB TUFNELL, 83 Page Street, London SW1P 4HA
From electric guitar to machine gun, popular means of protest exemplify the limited means with which resistance is expressed in the face of overwhelming technological and political opposition.

The cocaine boom and Miami riots of the 1980s provided the violent backdrop to the television series Miami Vice. The show broke new ground by drawing upon New Wave culture and music and cynically implying that the tally of dead criminals that each episode ended with would immediately be replenished.

Carrion, carrion brings together the far corners of Laura Dee Milnes‘ diverse artistic practices in this, her first solo exhibition, creating conversations between sculpture, performance, text and sound.
