Still from Videodrome, 1983

New Display Strategies and Waterside Project Space present
Cathode Ray Mission which takes its title from David Cronenberg's cult classic 1983 film Videodrome.

Cathode Ray Mission creates a fictional environment in which to display artists' video. With its technologically redundant display equipment, ad-hoc office architecture and low-budget aesthetics, the strategy stands in opposition to the mundane, yet readily available, platforms for exhibition.

Cathode Ray Mission includes works by Tom Badley, Rob Kiff, Daniel White, Amanda Wasielewski, Richard John Jones and Jack George, each shown in an upholstered office cubicle, amongst which the audience move as in a labyrinth.

The exhibition is curated by Josh Love. New Display Strategies is the collaborative framework of Josh Love, Richard John Jones and Carlos Monleon, in which they explore new models of address and exhibition.
