Pyramid Schemes: A Collaborative Exhibition

Pyramid Schemes‘ is a collaborative exhibition organised by Lawrence Lek and The White Review to showcase a collection of short stories about real and imaginary buildings. Drawing inspiration from the work of Victor Hugo, Apollinaire and Jorge Luis Borges, the project invites sixty contemporary artists and writers to submit 100-word texts that explore architectures of their own creation.

The first twenty submissions received before Friday 12 April will feature in the exhibition. Submissions are open to all and should be sent to editors@thewhitereview.org.

For one night only, an immersive installation at The White Building in Hackney Wick will shape the collected texts into a panoramic cityscape. Please join us on Thursday 2nd May from 7-10pm to celebrate the spectacle of this fictional city. A limited edition of fold-out artists’ books will be produced to accompany the event.

The project continues themes explored in Lawrence Lek’s essay ‘Pyramid Schemes: Reading The Shard’, featured in The White Review No. 7 alongside works by Luc Tuymans and John Stezaker.

Part of the First Thursdays late-night gallery openings in East London. With the support of SPACE Studios and the White Building.
