From 27 June to 26 July, a “living exhibition” will take over every nook and cranny of the Barbican, both indoors and outdoors, for 30 days. Station to Station draws together an inspiring and diverse fusion of international and UK-based artists from the world of contemporary art, music, dance, graphic design and film, with much of the work created live in the space.

Over 100 artists are already programmed as part of Station to Station with even more acts in the pipeline. Of the confirmed acts so far, highlights include a performance by Suicide presenting new music and classics from their back catalogue; Terry Riley composing and improvising for five days, culminating in a performance of new material written during the residency; an 88-cymbal-players performance led by the Boredoms; music residencies from Warp Records’ LoneLady and Nozinja, and VF collaborators Haroon Mirza and Factory Floor; a unique live performance by Savages, and Light Echoes, a specially commissioned interactive laser installation by Aaron Koblin and Ben Tricklebank.
