Hackpad Event: (play)ground - less / Luli Perez / Jane Frances Dunlop & Mira Loew

What does it mean to be an artist in today’s digital and nomadic world?

Who forms our community when we exist inside a global network?

Where do we find the local when we are constantly on the move?

What does it mean to inhabit the temporary?

Itinerant Assembly interrogates these questions through a five-month programme of events which investigate the productive potential of temporary togetherness. The series of assemblies, which began in January this year, culminates in two final events this May: a new commission by emerging international artist group (play)ground - less, and a hackpad event based around a conversation between international participants, which will take place on an online collaborative document that can be updated in real time.

    What We Talk About When We Talk About Work, ‘Fictional Encounters’

    The forthcoming event in the What We Talk About ... series of public discussions will explore the use of language as a medium within contemporary art and curatorial practices. Invited speakers will consider the “liminality” of language, focusing on the potential slide into fiction, misunderstanding and failure that a particular use of language in exhibition making and archival practice can facilitate. Speakers include Director of Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, Alistair Robertson, curator and writer George Vasey and Amsterdam based curator, writer and semiotician Sara Giannini.
