Beatrice Gibson: F for Fibonacci
Until 23 November, at Laura Bartlett Gallery

Gibson’s latest video is a response to William Gaddis’ epic modernist novel JR (1975) and the work of the experimental educator and composer John Paynter. Expect a ‘hallucinatory soup’ of social satire and dystopian vision.
