Motorcade/FlashParade Kicks off 2012 with Here Comes Everybody, a collabortive exhibition produced through a mini-resdiency by our team of volunteers. They have also produced a publication to accompany the show.

Here Comes Everbody is centred on how the digital and physical/human realms relate to each other, and the extent to which this differentiation is useful or relevant within the context of personal identity and communication.

We live in a world that is increasingly reliant, augmented, permutated and mediated through the technology of the microchip. A technology that is based on the powerful but impersonal logic of ones and zeros, binary and pixels. This revolutionary change is not only inevitable, it is already happening.

This is a source of great excitement but can also raise anxieties, doubts and confusion; or maybe it just reflects age-old human characteristics. This exhibition brings together 10 artists who work in a variety of media and methodologies to make work together. In doing so it approaches the topic from all three perspectives and is as much about the emotions and ideas this area provokes as the technology itself.

Here Comes Everybody is supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
