What does it mean to inhabit the temporary?
Where do we find the local, when we are constantly on-the-move?
Who forms our community, when we exist inside a global network?
And what does it mean to be an artist in today’s digitalised and nomadic world?
Staged simultaneously at Gasworks, Green Rooms and creative workspace Second Home, the Hackpad Event draws together these questions which Itinerant Assembly has raised and interrogated over the last 5 months.
During the Hackpad Event, artists will engage with, interpret and interrupt a live online conversation that takes place through a Hackpad, a collaborative online document that can be updated in real time.
At Green Rooms, Jane Frances Dunlop and Mira Loew will present a new site-specific video installation and performance. Navigating the intertangle between real and virtual sites, Loew and Dunlop regularly collaborate to create performances that respond to the particularities of augmented relations. This new work explores practices of exchange and relation responding to the historic space of Green Rooms as it folds out into the virtual sites of long distance collaborative processes.
Invited international participants to the Hackpad conversation include artists and researchers Christopher Kulendran Thomas, Shumi Bose, Zheng Bo and Lina Hermsdorf.
This is a FREE event but places are limited. Please reserve a place by ordering a ticket. Thank you!
Itinerant Assembly is curated by Alice White, Chloe Hodge, Hannah Zafiropoulos, Rosie Hermon, Tiffany Leung and Xiaoyi Nie as part of the Curating Contemporary Art programme Graduate Projects 2017, Royal College of Art, working in partnership with Gasworks.
