Pure Evil - your vote counts

From 11am on Friday 1st May to 8pm Saturday 16th May you can vote for your favourite venue to win an extraordinary contemporary artist to host a Museums at Night event in October. Choose the venue you want to vote for and fill in your contact details and you could also take part in the event if your chosen venue wins.

The four venues competing to win Pure Evil in the Connect! competition are:

Sutton House, Hackney invite Pure Evil to respond to a series of autumn interventions designed to interrogate and celebrate the historic house’s past. A multi-media events programme will include an installation, gigs by Flowers in the Dustbin (original squatters), an exhibition of graffiti, artwork, pictures and film by the squatters and an anecdote or two.

The Centre for Computing History, Cambridge want to experiment and learn, make mistakes and take risks. The event could be a series of workshops for the public culminating in an evening of music and light with synthesizers, Sonic Pi, digital audio equipment and soundscapes to play on the night.

UCL Museums and Collections, London have invited Pure Evil to their temporary outdoor space in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park as part of their ‘The Museum is Where the People Are’ project. In collaboration with community groups and a range of partners they intend to explore the discussion around the changes that are taking place in Stratford and Newham.

Verdant Works, Dundee invite Pure Evil to use their collections and archive to explore the themes of Invention, Engineering, Power and Politics in the renovated 1833 High Mill. Based on one of Pure Evil’s artistic principles, we’ll ask young people to ‘WEAR THEIR POLITICS PROUDLY’; collaborating with local collective Projector Club to create an immersive sound and projected light installation.

Polls close at 8pm on Saturday 16th May 2015!
