Build Your Own Art World: artists and curators are invited to imagine other ways art can be made and shared.
OSR Projects are excited to announce a one-day seminar ‘Build Your Own Art World’, taking place on Friday 16 March 2018. 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.
Build Your Own Art World is organised by OSR Projects and supported by Arts Council England.
