Langlands & Bell

Ben Langlands & Nikki Bell explore the complex web of relationships linking people, architecture, and the coded systems of mass-communications and exchange we use to negotiate an increasingly fast changing technological world. The artists have been collaborating since 1978. Their art ranges from film and digital media projects to sculpture, installation, and full-scale architecture. It focuses on the structures we inhabit and the networks that permeate and link them, while reflecting at a wider global level on the many ways space is encoded as social, political or economic territory.

Langlands & Bell have shown in a number of solo exhibitions internationally, including Tate Britain, London, Imperial War Museum, London, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, Kelvingrove Museum, Glasgow and a Criée, Halle d'Art Contemporain, Rennes, France. Group shows include State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg, Russia, Musée des Beaux-Arts de St Lo, France, The British Museum, London, UK, Tang Contemporary 798, Beijing, China, Seoul Museum of Art, Seoul, South Korea, New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, Brooklyn Museum, and New York, the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
