Each Action Informs The Next 
An Exhibition of Paintings by malorymaki and Crow Versus Crow

Opening Evening: Friday 3rd March, 2017
Exhibition continues Saturday 4th March - Sunday 30th April 2017

South Square Gallery
South Square, Thornton, Bradford, West Yorkshire. BD13 3LB

It's a great pleasure to be able to invite you to the opening of Each Action Informs The Next, an exhibition of visual works by Crow Versus Crow and malorymaki. This collection of new abstract paintings draws into focus the importance of improvisation, spontaneity and process within their respective practices, with both artists placing emphasis upon the traces of the action of making within the complexities, both physical and emotional, of these works on canvas.

More information on the work of malorymaki can be found here: https://www.malorymaki.com/

Also, joining us for a number of special performances during the Opening Evening on Friday 3rd March are:


As part of Each Action Informs The Next, and perhaps in some way following on from her excellent Count The Days record of last year, Sophie will be performing a newly composed work for trombone. Sophie has released a number of records of both solo and collaborative works, with the likes of Delphine Dora, Tor Invocation Band, on as hip and happening labels as Exotic Pylon, Was Ist Das?, Wild Silence and Rural Colours.



Known for his distinctive tape scree, vocal hump, dictaphone jaxx, Posset (Beartown Records, Chocolate Monk, Singing Knives, Fuckin' Amateurs...), taking the Each Action Informs The Next title as a starting point, will be performing a new work developed specifically for the exhibition.



One of the most prolific artists of the No-Audience Underground, Stuart Chalmers is responsible for making some of the most essential tape music of the last 6/7 years. Ranging from cut-up plunderphonics to swarmandal improvisations, there's a clear reason Stuart's work has been made available to the world through such hep cats as the Strange Rules, Beartown Invisible City and Was Ist Das? labels.


Here is a Facebook Event page for the exhibition. Please 'join' for further updates regarding the exhibition and Opening Evening events.

The gallery space will be open from 5pm on Friday 3rd March. Vegetarian/vegan street food, cocktails and various non- and alcoholic refreshments are available. Performances taking place from around 7pm. Entry is FREE but space is limited. COME!
