Bill Drummond will lead a performance of The17 at Terminal Convention’s opening at the Cork Airport Decommissioned Terminal on 16th March. Scottish artist Bill Drummond (1953) has used various media in his practice including actions, music and words. His actions too numerous to list, some more infamous than others; his music from the multi million selling KLF to the choral music of The17; the words have accumulated into numerous books. His work of the last ten years is documented at www.penkiln-burn.com. http://the17.org
The musical elemenet of Terminal Convention will take place in Cork city between 17th – 19th March. The line ups are:
Terminal Convention will be an internationally significant art, film, music and discursive event featuring some of the worlds leading and emerging international artists, musicians and academics. The project takes place 17-27 March 2011, and is set in the former Cork International Airport, Ireland and Cork city centre music venues.
The project will also be the subject of an international publication and documentary and elements of the event will also be streamed live on the internet.
The concept for the project has been developed by Static Gallery, Liverpool, an arts organisation with a track record of delivering medium to large-scale art, music and symposium events.
Terminal Convention consists of four strands, Exhibition, Symposium, Art Fair and Music Event, and each element is interrelated in terms of subject and experience and many of the participating artists, musicians, academics, cultural commentators and the public will engage in all of the platforms.
