Tim Riley Walsh - Adieu Au Dancefloor

Is it time to say farewell to the dancefloor or at least wallow in the mere thought? What might a post-dancefloor world even sound like? Appropriately—especially coming from Gertrude, the supposed HQ of ‘new gothic art’—it is all a bit apocalyptic in tone. There is some optimism at first, teary goodbyes to the subject at hand (but in French, ooh la la), and then a whole lot of chaos, disease, hopeless thoughts, being ‘not okay’, what sounds like some mortar fire – before ending in “total disarray”. Confoundingly, it is also kind of danceable.

Tim Riley Walsh is the current Curator in Residence at Gertrude.
