About Reactor

Through ongoing research into belief systems and their place in collective action, Reactor explores the ways in which culture and common beliefs hold together specific social groups.

Reactor is an art collective, currently made up of three core members (Bruce Asbestos, Phillip Henderson and Niki Russell) and an undisclosed number of secret members.

We have two exhibitions open currently, firstly a newly commissioned work Alligator Resort at the New Art Exchange in Nottingham through until the 19 June and also The Gold Ones at Gallery North in Newcastle through until the 7 May. We're also working on new commissions with Kunst Vardo and Radar, and heading to Schwitters' Merz Barn for a residency in the Autumn.
