Online version of Encyclopaedia unveiled

Alan Currall

Event overview

This disarmingly humorous, and disarmingly prescient, work of reference, crowd-sourced by Currall from the amateur expertise of family and friends was made in 2000, two years or so before Wikipedia became a universal fact of public life. First produced on CD-Rom, the work has been newly re-mastered for online access, and will be glossed by a new commentary on the work.

'Encyclopaedia' was a Film and Video Umbrella Touring Exhibition. Curated and produced by Film and Video Umbrella, Stills and Potteries Museum and Art Gallery. This event is part of Film and Video Umbrella's '25 Frames'.

Supported by the National Touring Programme of the Arts Council of England.
