PRODUCTION SHOW: PROTOTYPING/DISCOVERING/ANALYSING
1 October – 10 December
Public Preview Friday 30 September, 6–8pm
Eastside Projects’ activation of Birmingham as a city of production continues as we transition from Pending/Researching/Concepting to Prototyping/Discovering/Analysing.
The second in a series of evolving exhibitions in the main gallery will include new sculptural works made in Birmingham and Kingswinford by Alice Channer; heated cast iron sculptures by Nicolas Deshayes; research into the weights and measures of Digbeth by Linda Brothwell; the beginnings of Peter Nencini’s typographic signage system for Eastside Projects’ façade; Des Hughes’ encaustic tile making tests produced in Ironbridge; a series of proposals for public art works for a new housing development and country park in Banbury; and the first draft of a proposition imagining the Birmingham Artists House, a new model of live/work space for cultural workers being developed in partnership with Impact Hub Birmingham.
‘Production Show’ is an evolving process – a programme of relationships, commissions, exhibitions and events spanning two years which explodes Eastside Projects as an active space of research, development, prototyping, manufacturing and display. Other artists have, and will, include AutoItalia, Chloe Ashley, Sonia Boyce, Heather & Ivan Morison, Gabi Ngcobo, Performance as Publishing, Rosalie Schweiker and Richard Woods.
