LUX is proud to present the first London solo exhibition of artist and writer Morgan Quaintance. With the same perspicacity and attention that characterises his essays and critical writing, Quaintance has produced a trilogy of short films under the title Hysteresis.
The trilogy consists of Another Decade (2018), a film foregrounding the distance between academic art world debates of the 1990s and the dynamic vitality of cultural and political life outside institutions in the UK’s capital; Anne, Richard and Paul (2018), a portrait of the experimental music of Bow Gamelan Ensemble, an artist group who made music from the matter of pre-gentrified East London, commissioned by Live Art Development Agency (LADA); and Early Years (2019), an account of one woman’s first generation diasporic experience in Britain newly commissioned by KARST, Plymouth.
