Called Live from the Barbican, the new socially distanced concert series will feature performances from Nubya Garcia, Shabaka Hutchings, Emmy the Great, Erland Cooper, SEED Ensemble and more.

Jarvis Cocker’s newly formed band JARV IS… will perform a set within the Michael Clark: Cosmic Dancer exhibition, which runs from the 7th October 2020 to the 3rd January 2021.

Live from the Barbican shows will also be streamed online on a pay-to-view basis, with the footage available to view and rewatch for 48 hours after each concert begins.

Free stream passes are being offered to communities in London, Manchester, Harlow and Norfolk, as part of the Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning’s work with schools and communities.

Alongside the sonic offerings, the Barbican is also collaborating with Culture Mile to focus on working with artists and communities through a series of community residencies, artist commissions and funding opportunities. The first project, Considering Breath, will commission artists to create work in response to the Black Lives Matter movement, COVID-19, and access to clean air in cities.
