On being together; memberships, collectives and unions

Exhibition dates: 6 October – 25 November

Launches on 5 October 2018
Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall

On being together; memberships, collectives and unions’ will develop new artworks dedicated to the concept of ‘membership’ to be sited in the outdoor spaces of Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall (BGV), London. The project invites ‘members’ to join in with the realisation of a social sculpture: its design, build and the programming of its activities around collectives, unions, groups and clubs.

Leading the project are the Partisan Social Club and architect Sean Griffiths. The end goal is to enable a new assemble to emerge who will work together to publish ideas and thinking (texts and slogans) on collectivizing, here and now.

We are keen to develop new collaborative and informal techniques of working on architectural structures – enabling improvised responses from a team of members working in a ‘real’ and ‘now’ situation.

There will be 2 preliminary workshops:

Workshop 1 (Thursday 13 Sept)

‘Introduction to Memberships, Collectives and Unions – on how and why working together makes a difference’ (slogan writing and text making)

Workshop 2 (Thursday 27 Sept – Sunday 30 Sept)

‘Spatial working – responding to function and space’, including the production and installation of the final designs.

The opening Launch is on 5 October 2018 – if you want to see the results!

To become a  ‘member’ of the new collective it will be important to attend the first  workshop on 13thSeptember at Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall, 10.30 – 5pm.
