MIRRORCITY explores the effect the digital revolution has had on our experiences.
London is one of the world's centres for contemporary art. MIRRORCITY shows recent work and new commissions by key emerging and established artists working in the capital today, who seek to address the challenges, conditions and consequences of living in a digital age.
JG Ballard believed that reality had already exceeded the visions conjured by science fiction by the end of the 20th century. Drawing on the digital era we now live in, the artists in MIRRORCITY respond to and address this new perception of the world.
Artists have always created alternative realities but recently they have been exploring where the digital and the physical space crossover and fold into each other.
The exhibition considers questions specific to our time such as: ‘How can we navigate the space between the digital and the physical?’ and ‘What is the effect of advanced technologies on our lives?'

Carsten Höller – Decision Dilemma
- 9 June — 6 September 2015
A solo exhibition by Carsten Höller, featuring a wide range of work in different media representing his artistic output from the past 20 years, including many works which have been seen in the UK before or which will be created especially for this exhibition.
Carsten Höller was born in Brussels in 1961 and lives and works in Sweden. After obtaining an advanced degree in science, Höller went on to develop a unique art practice that often draws on scientific experiments and research in works designed to affect our psychological and perceptual experience.
The Hayward Gallery exhibition challenges perceptions as each individual entering the exhibition is confronted with their own decisions to make in regards to how they view and engage with the art works.
