Justin Robertson presents The Explorer’s Chronicle

Wednesday, June 15, 2016 - 18:00 to Friday, June 17, 2016 - 18:00

It might not change your life, but it will certainly change your perspective. Celebrated DJ, producer, musician and artist Justin Robertson has organised a free three-day arts event called The Explorer’s Chronicle.

The kind of get together which will entertain, fascinate and make you wonder all at the same time, The Explorer’s Chronicle will take place from June 15th- June 17th at the Red Gallery in Shoreditch. It will feature an exhibition of Justin’s most recent artworks along with talks and discussions, philosophy and live music from a wide range of bright minds.

The line-up includes celebrated author John Higgs, American writer and musician Gary Lachman (one of the founding members of Blondie), author Nina Lyon and the acclaimed game designer and philosopher Dr Chris Bateman.

There is live music from Circle Sky (featuring Richard Norris and Martin Dubka) and on Friday night a live music showcase curated by Justin and the legendary imprint Skint Records who were behind his 2015 Everything Is Turbulence album - plus a brilliant line up of DJs, including Justin himself.

Entry to The Explorer’s Chronicle is free of charge, which is pretty amazing in itself, but also adds to the character and personality of the whole occasion.

The cornerstone of the exhibition is the first showing of Justin’s new collection of art - presented in a mixture of media. Drawing on the great tradition of botanical sketching, his inspirational work depicts the flora and fauna of this alternate universe, finding inspiration in the patterns of the natural world.  Other themes include magik, possession, the supernatural, fantastical creatures, the history of belief, past times and cultures, uncertainty and alien life forms. A dedicated book of illustration and text and a bespoke soundtrack will accompany the exhibition.

The Explorer’s Chronicle is Justin’s second exhibition – his first, Everything is Turbulence, opened to critical acclaim at the Maurice Einhardt Neu Gallery in London in 2015 and has since toured Manchester, Leeds, Ireland and Sweden.

The exhibition will be open to the public every day from midday until 6pm. No tickets needed.

Exhibition opens (free entry)  to the public from Wednesday June 15 – Friday June 17
