A collective of art inspired at Buster Keaton’s work

A collective of conceptual international artists involved in films productions, photography, sculptures, installation arts, and performance presents the exhibition The World Turned Upside Down, inspired by Buster Keaton's first solo film One Week (released in 1920).

Buster Keaton is considered one of the most important names of silent films, and not just this iconic film but also his two other works, The Boat and The Cameraman, are going to be played repeatedly as part of the installation.

The idea is finding a connecting between the slapstick film, sculpture and performance throughout Keaton's art work features, such as the process of repetition, failure and risk.

The exhibition, which is supported by the Henry Moore Foundation, is featuring works from contemporary, historical, established and emerging artists such as Bas Jan Ader, Marcel Broodthaers, Alexandre da Cunha, Simon Faithfull, Fischli Weiss, Brian Griffiths, Emma Hart, Jeppe Hein, Sofia Hultén, Tehching Hsieh, Gordon Matta-Clark, Hayley Newman, Miranda Pennell, Ruth Proctor, Roman Signer, William Wegman, Richard Wentworth, Richard Wilson, John Wood and Paul Harrison, Ben Woodeson and Erwin Wurm.

The World Turned Upside Down- Buster Keaton sculpture and the absurd is a Mead Gallery exhibition, placed at The Warwick Arts Centre.
