'Sound and Vision' at LGLondon - curated by Jonathan Watkins and featuring work by Yukio Fujimoto and David Cunningham

This exhibition, curated by Jonathan Watkins, Director of the Ikon gallery in Birmingham, focuses on the nature of human perception. The circumscription of our aural and visual experience – simply, through the way our bodies work – is played on by David Cunningham (b. Ireland, 1954) and Yukio Fujimoto (b. Japan 1950) in order to achieve compelling artistic outcomes. They make the most of the truism that we only hear what we can hear, and see what we can see. This is the first time Cunningham and Fujimoto, both equally acclaimed and influential internationally, have exhibited together.

Nakaya has fabulous English, so it was not surprising to hear that she had gone to school in Chicago. Later on she returned to New York to study. In her entertaining talk at Tate Modern yesterday, 17 February 2015, she gave an overview of her work and also engaged in a question and answer session. She is effortlessly charming and humorous.

Former Daiwa Scholar, Guy Mayman is taking part in DATAMOSH at Oriel Wrecsam until 21 March 2015. DATAMOSH came about when artists Paul R Jones and Guy Mayman discovered a large archive of 35mm slides, audio cassettes and A4 booklets earmarked for destruction at the Art School where they were working. This material was no longer wanted because of a perception that it had been rendered obsolete by the digital hardware and Wi-Fi access ubiquitous in the 21st Century.
