The British Council has an article about Jeremy Deller and the British Pavillion in Venice here.
On the opening day, the Melodians Steel Orchestra were playing and the gallery was packed. The orchestra played music from Jeremy Deller's film and other works and were joined by The Big Sing, Turner Gallery's resident choir. They also performed a piece arranged by Emily Peasgood part of the SoundsLikeArt project.
I really like the sound of the steel drums, which seem to have a particular energy that is uplifting.
I made my way upstairs during their performance to stand and look down at part of the orchestra from above.
The main galleries had the English Magic exhibition and some small Turner paintings chosen by Jeremy Deller. I only had a brief walk round and will go back several more times before the exhibition ends.
Other exhibits include Neolithic hand axes, photos from the Ziggy Stardust Tour of 1972 and text based banner type works.
