Cristina Guitian along with 4 other artists and designers has been invited to customize a table tennis table each as part of the Exhibition Match event at The Vintage Festival at The South Bank Centre.
“For Exhibition Match, Cristina’s obsession with collecting things she finds (some would call them vintage items, some would call them pieces of rubbish…), morphs the traditional table tennis set up into a customized playground full of reminders from our past, obstructing our future.”
Exhibition Match artists include: Cristina Guitian, Kelly Hoppen, Wayne Hemingway, William Hardie and Will Nash.
The Exhibition Match Open Tournament is part of Vintage at Southbank. It will take place just outside the Hayward Gallery, at the Southbank Centre on the 29th, 30th, 31st July 2011. The tables will be open for visitors to play on for free over the three days from 12am till 6pm. There will also be exhibition matches featuring special guests and past and future stars of UK table tennis.
