Thursday 13 to Saturday 29 October, 10am-4.30pm, campus-wide
Thursday 13 October, 5pm, Private View

A contemporary-art event that transforms the spaces and corners of the Anglia Ruskin (and other Cambridge locations) into a gallery for artists who use an element of language in their work. ALL features paintings, installations, film and orchestrated-sound, therefore a variety of artistic experiences can be found throughout the university campus. Over 30 participating artists have selected non-traditional as well as the Ruskin Gallery, for displaying their creative interventions. The exhibition promises to provide some progressive views on the language arts, as well as challenging the conventional view of what constitutes an art gallery.

Showtime - day of performance art

Saturday, 15 October, 11.30am-5.15pm, tickets £12.50/£7

ALL features a day of performance art alongside a chance to view the exhibitions. Among the six performances taking place throughout the day, is In Transglashphõnē by the Female Laptop Orchestra or FLO. FLO is an eclectic group of female musicians, engineers, composers, sound artists and computer scientists, who explore collaborative music-making. Other performances include artist anti-cool attempting to master Esperanto, and a collaboration between purveyor of evocative imagery, Gen Doy, and Jonathan Rogerson. During ALL2015, Rogerson delivered a hauntingly resonant performance of ‘Nobody knows where my Johnny has gone’.
