Exhibition Opening

Friday 10 February, 5-7pm

Join Michael Lett for the opening of et al. i am the direct source of truth on Saturday 29 April 11am–3pm.

In 2001 the artist working under the pseudonym L. Budd resigned, re-signing thereafter simply as “et al.” meaning “and others”. While L. Budd had been an inclusive signature throughout the late 1990s often signing as “L. Budd et al.”, hinting at the collaborative of unnamed parties, this was nonetheless a new beginning, a birth with an implicit end. Not the death of the author but the death of the individual signatory, and the emergence of a new collective framework, also anonymous.
