Public - You & Me
A Test-bed Public Programme - Co-Curated with Rebecca Davies
3 - 28 June at AirSpace Gallery
Public – You & Me is a test-bed project open to all. Inviting artists and designers to share their modes of cultural production and the public to take part through discussion, workshop and events. In The Company She Keeps, Celine Condorelli describes this as 'making things public: the process of connecting things, establishing relationships, which in many ways means befriending issues, people, contexts.' It's about friendship being a form of solidarity.
Over four-weeks, AirSpace Gallery is activated as a space for You & Me: a place for artists, makers, neighbours and visitors to participate in this test-bed project. Public - You & Me will mobilise, make visible and extend the work currently done by AirSpace, establishing a fresh public programme for its audience.
Produced as part of B-arts' What is Now? and in response to Burslem Conservation Area Appraisal
August - September 2018
