Remaining in play
It is widely acknowledged that play is central to the physical and mental development of children. At FutureFest, Brian Eno will argue that it is equally central to the continued psychological and social development of adults - and that, through Art and Culture, we should continue playing throughout the whole of our lives. He will explore the socio-political implications for society of 'remaining in play'.
Brian Eno first came to international prominence in the early 70s as a founding member of Roxy Music, followed by a series of highly acclaimed vocal and instrumental solo albums.
His visionary production work includes albums with U2, David Bowie, Talking Heads, Coldplay and many others.
His visual experiments with light and video continue to parallel his musical career with numerous exhibitions throughout Europe, the USA, Japan and Australia. A new album, The Ship, was released in April 2016 and is his first solo record since 2012’s Grammy-nominated LUX. The Ship coincides with a series of installations of the same name that will be exhibited around the world throughout 2016-17.
