A project by NN Contemporary Art in partnership with Errol Flynn Filmhouse and Zagare Capital of Culture 2015.
NN's alternative Eurovision returns with artist moving image with music in its broadest sense. The artists featured were selected from an open call from across the European Broadcast Area. The Boom Bang II screening programme ranges from an interpretation of the big bang to songs crossing continent, 8bit Internet raucousness, absurd mashups of commercial folk with disco pop to contemplative journeys through teenage melancholy and tragic tales of loss.
NN is working once again with Northampton's Errol Flynn Filmhouse to celebrate Eurovision. Visitors are invited to join together for the live final of Eurovision on Saturday 23rd May 2015 as it is broadcast live from Vienna at the Errol Flynn Filmhouse (tickets available from www.ErrolflynnFilmHouse.com or in person at the box office). The night will finish with an afterparty at NN Café with Midnight Karaoke until the small hours.
Ding a dong.
Boom Bang II will be travelling to Zagare, Lithuania Capital of Culture 2015 in September and on to Tbilisi in Georgia.
