Dressing The Air is the brainchild of the London-based artist Paul Schütze.

In a career spanning 30 years, Schütze has exhibited his photographic and installation works in galleries and museums around the world, released over thirty albums of original recordings, scored a number of films and performed numerous concerts. He has collaborated with artists such as James Turrell, Josiah McElheny and Isaac Julien and musicians as diverse as Bill Laswell, Raoul Björkenheim, Toshinori Kondo, Lol Coxhill and Jah Wobble.

Dressing The Air is a unique open resource that aims to enrich creative thinking by encouraging a multi-sensory approach. A constantly evolving archive and creative news feed, Dressing The Air monitors and reports on a diverse range of art-forms from cinema to sculpture, painting to furniture design, land-art to perfumery.

Alternative Guide To The Universe

The most engrossing exhibition The Hayward have mounted in years, this essential show contains more passion, vision, and, often unacknowledged, brilliance that  our over heated art market sees in a decade. The worlds (and they often feel like genuinely discrete worlds) devised and occupied by many of the artists presented here are so acutely  felt, so minutely conceived that it is impossible not to be drawn into them. Each body of work feels compulsive and inevitable. As the artists often work in complete obscurity, unsupported by commercial infrastructure or critical adulation, they are sustained and driven by the need to work. Compelling re-imaginings of everything from the cities we build to the basic functioning of the body and the cosmos it inhabits lead the viewer steadily away from any notion of rational consensus until the most elementary truths feel just a little random. Until the 26th of August.
