Phoenix Exhibitions and Events

As part of my on-going documentation of digital arts in Leicester have been compiling a list of past exhibitions and events at Phoenix (known as Phoenix Square from November 2009 to September 2012). Much of this content has come from the Phoenix website at www.phoenix.org.uk, but I am also adding my own archival materials and annotations where appropriate. If you spot any omissions or errors please let me know.

Events pre-November 2009 took place at the Phoenix Art Centre on Upper Brown Street and have been included to show how the 'old Phoenix' began to engage with digital arts prior to its move to the Cultural Quarter in November 2009. This part of the archive will be incomplete since I tended to only document the digital arts events I was involved in.

Leading edge lo_tempo electronica DJs will prevail in the Bar.And what's all this about an after show party?

11pm-4am - AFTERSHOW PARTY @ ATTIK provided by PVC, headlining BENT

Rather appropriately the party will be augmented by BJ Cole collaborators BENT, Djing their inimitable, gooey electronic sounds late into the night. The full menu, spread across two floors consists of:

1st Floor - BENT, EDDIE23 & STEVE MORGAN
Ground Floor - MYOPTIK & JAMMY-GEE

And it's completely free for those who pay to see the main event at the Phoenix! Simply present your Phoenix ticket at the door and the whole session of PVC's trademark Global Dub-Inflected Funkatronix will be open for you to delight in, all within the walls of PVC's familiar home… The Attik.
