Yuz Museum Shanghai presents Everything & Nothing, Random International’s first solo exhibition in Asia. The exhibition encompasses new works alongside established pieces of pivotal significance within the artists’ practice. The exhibited works consider ideas of simulation, decision-making, and automation in an immediate and sensory way.

A London-based, multi-disciplinary collective, Random International explores the human condition in an increasingly mechanised world through emotional yet physically intense experiences. The artists aim to prototype possible behavioural environments by experimenting with different notions of consciousness, perception, and instinct. The exhibition continues this path of enquiry; each of the works generates its own environment, to which visitors are invited to respond on their own terms. Random International strives to “invite visitors to re-experience and re-examine the physical spaces that represent our relationship with technology. These spaces relate to both lived and speculative perceptions of an increasingly automated environment, and how natural phenomena and human behaviour can shape the world.”
