Taking the form of a working group, Constellations will give six artists (two from outside London) the opportunity to come together to study sociopolitical contexts as the site for their artistic practice.
Running from October 2017 – May 2018, the group will explore different methods and approaches to artistic research and community-orientated practice, through a series of day-long monthly workshops hosted by Flat Time House (FTHo). Each session will be led by an invited guest, the first four guests include; Ain Bailey, Jasleen Kaur, Rory Pilgrim and Rehana Zaman. Other workshop guests will be invited by the group.
Alongside the workshops, there will also be budget and curatorial support to programme two public events, the form and content of which will be shaped and determined by the group collaboratively.
The programme will support artists to develop their practice, collaborate with others, access new networks, and spend time at FTHo as a place to study and research between the monthly workshop sessions.
Conceived by UP Projects in collaboration with FTHo, the project draws on the history of John Latham’s house as a site of experimental art education where students, artists and the wider public can come together to test the boundaries of what is teachable and knowable.
All six artists will receive a fee for taking part on the programme, and are expected to be able to commit to at least six workshop sessions out of seven and both public events.
Deadline: Monday 14 August 2017.
