Art Jules Verne style

You've read the book and seen the films, now check out the exhibition. Around the World in Eight Days, kicking off today at the ICA and the South London Gallery simultaneously, takes Jules Verne's novel as a narrative for the 20 artists exhibiting.

Participating artists, all of which were born abroad but now live and work in London, will exhibit either a new piece of work that was conceived in response to the book – or present existing work that relates to its themes of travel and tourism, technological and political change, and the beginnings of cultural globalisation. The resulting artworks cover film, video, photography, drawing and sculpture.

Running until July 16, 2006 you may have less than 80 days to catch the exhibition but, hey, there's no international date line to cross.
