Throbbing Gristle - TG24
Cabinet Gallery, London, December 2002

To coincide with the release of TG24, the Cabinet Gallery hosted a four day exhibition devoted to Throbbing Gristle. The exhibition featured uniforms, photographs, manifestos, letters, sound gadgets and other ephemera from the collections of the four Throbbing Gristle members: Cosey Fanni Tutti, Chris Carter, Genesis P-Orridge and Peter Christopherson. The four day exhibition was soundtracked by the chronological playing of 24 Hours of Throbbing Gristle, originally released by Industrial Records in 1980 in a suitcase containing 26 cassettes, and reissued in 2002 by The Grey Area of Mute Records in a CD boxset edition as TG24 featuring remastered editions by Chris Carter. The boxset and its contents were also exhibited.
