What is the role of a gallery in the forging of a new city? Eastside Projects wants to be a productive force and work with others to invent new modes of production. We want to be used. We need to work with you.
From widgets to houses, from the gallery to the World, ‘Production Show’ is a public acting out of our impulse to develop and support the making of culture in challenging times, and an attempt to reclaim Birmingham as a city of production.
The gallery is a machine for the production of art only in collaboration with others. Taking ‘the artist and the engineer’ as a modus operandi, ‘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 – bringing to the fore processes which are usually kept behind the scenes.
