A London art space is set to make that nightlife-mad pal of yours very happy indeed. Rather than spending a sweaty Sunday with Netflix for company, they have the opportunity to go and see one of their favourite DJs exhibiting in a recently opened London gallery.

Kieran Hebden, better known to most of us as Four Tet, is set to exhibit alongside painter Anna Liber Lewis at Elephant West, an “innovative” gallery and space which opened in the capital late last year.

Their joint show, entitled Muscle Memory sees Anna’s “expressive” paintings, which the gallery describes as “full of emotional context”, with Hebden providing aural accompaniment via three brand new original pieces of music. We’re told that the tracks in question, “range from ambient and twinkly, to bass-heavy and danceable, echoing the emotional journey across Liber Lewis’s work.”

Running from 18 January through to 17 March 2019, Muscle Memory is the creative culmination of the duo’s long-term friendship. Talking about the material on display, Anna says: “We were both influenced by how we move through the world and the people and things close to us.” Sounds nice, doesn’t it.

In addition to the aforementioned paintings and pieces of music, Muscle Memory will also be accompanied by a “dynamic programme of events and performances,” which will be announced later this month. If this has piqued your interest, why not slap Morning/Evening on, and settle down with our 2017 chat with Anna, which took place just after she bagged the Griffin Art Prize.
