    First exhibited: 1978 Art for Society, Whitechapel Gallery, London

    “This work was made expressly for an exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery in London in 1978 curated by Richard Cork. This followed closely on the heels of another Richard Cork show at the Serpentine Gallery ‘Art for Who?’ and I suppose was intended as an answer to the question. Submissions for the Whitechapel show were openly invited. I made a fairly simple piece of work in which advertsient hoardings were electronically wiped from the screen to reveal the often squalid scenes which they revealed. The soundtrack was of test card music.” Mick Hartney, March 2008
