Build your own art worldPosted: January 22, 2018
OSR Projects are excited to announce a one-day seminar ‘Build Your Own Art World’, taking place on Friday 16 March. This event will bring artists, curators and cultural producers together in rural Somerset to consider: What does it mean to be artist-led? Is there an alternative to a global gallery system? How do you build your own art world?
The programme includes an international panel of artists and organisers, representing a range of artist-run projects. Ad de Jong visits from Amsterdam to talk about the formation of iconic artist-run space W139 and Karl England will discuss Sluice, an London artist-run platform which currently comprises a biennial, expo, magazine and gallery. Plymouth collaborative duo LOW PROFILE, Cardiff arts space Spit & Sawdust and Bristol-based writer and singer Phil Owen, will offer interventions and provocations.
Designed for participants who are experienced in or curious about the artist-led as an alternative, the seminar offers opportunities to meet collaborators, break bread and explore collective strategies for building your own art world.
