We <heart> Jeremy Deller

He's having a retrospective split between two sites October 4 December 3 at the Art Gallery of York University and October 13 November 25 at Mercer Union artist-run centre. Jeremy Deller is an anthropologist of the ordinary, a field recorder of the overlooked, and a folklorist of the popular. The double AGYU exhibition draws together all the dimensions of Deller's varied work in the first retrospective of the Turner Prize winning British artist in North America. The AGYU will show Deller's early music- and DIY-oriented works, including Acid Brass, and the complete archive of The Battle of Orgreave (An Injury to One is an Injury to All), a re-enactment of the 1984 clash between British miners and police (also filmed by Mike Figgis) now in the collection of the Tate. Deller has also created a free take-away poster for the AGYU. The installation at Mercer Union concentrates on Deller's most recent works deriving from his residencies in the United States.
