#TransActing: A Market of Values

Saturday, 11th July 2015, 12 - 5pm, Chelsea College of Arts- London (across from Tate Britain)

This bustling pop-up market will feature artists, designers, civil-society groups, academics, ecologists, activists and others exploring existing structures of evaluation and producing desirable alternatives. Organised by Critical Practice, #TransActing is taking place on the historic Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground and will showcase enterprises likes skillshares, repair hubs, hacklabs, blood and food donation banks, expert and enthusiast knowledge, an estate agent, freegan food and other resources. These diverse forms of value production will animate economies beyond the financial one that dominates contemporary life.

#TransActing will be hosted in bespoke stalls built by Critical Practice, Public Works and other contributors. These will be interspersed with spaces of assembly and exchange - a speakers' corner, a social cinema - with multiple currencies circulating. It's a wealth beyond capital that will be traded at this market.

#TransActing is presented by Critical Practice and forms part of CCW Graduate School's Public Programme. The project is made possible by generous support from Arts Council England and CCW Graduate School. Many others have contributed time, money and other resources besides.

Organised by Critical Practice Research Cluster

We're a cluster of individual artists, designers, curators and other researchers associated with Chelsea College of Arts, University of the Arts London. Through our Aims we intend to support critical practice within art, the field of culture and organization.

We have a longstanding interest in public goods, spaces, services and knowledge, and a track record of producing original participatory events, like Parade an international series of events exploring the disagreeable, contentious, exhilarating, messy, efficient, live, improvisatory and provisional nature of Being in Public.

Critical Practice seeks to avoid the passive reproduction of art, and uncritical cultural production. Our research, projects, exhibitions, publications and funding, our very constitution and administration are legitimate subjects of critical enquiry. All art is organised, so we are trying to be sensitive to issues of governance. Governance emerges whenever there is a deliberate organisation of interactions between people, we are striving to be an 'open' organization, and to make all decisions, processes and production, accessible and transparent. We post all agendas, minutes, budget and decision-making processes online for public scrutiny.

The research elements pursued under the auspices of Critical Practice will engage with the various forces that are implicated in the making of art, and the increasingly devolved experience of art made available through art institutions to their audiences. We will explore new models for creative practice, and engage those models in appropriate public forums, both nationally and internationally; we envisage participation in exhibitions and the institutions of exhibition, seminar and unconferences, film, concert and other event programmes. We will work with archives and collections, publication, broadcast and other distributive media; while actively seeking to collaborate.

Proposals

We invite proposals for stalls. Please find a

I am writing to you as a member of Critical Practice, a cluster of artists, designers, curators and others based at Chelsea College of Arts. We have a longstanding interest in public goods, spaces, services and knowledge, and a track record of producing original participatory events.

Please see below for information about #TransActing: A Market of Values. This a one-day, bustling pop-up market will take place on 11 July in London and feature artists, designers, publishers, civil-society groups, and others who creatively explore structures that produce ‘value’. We aim to question how diverse values are constructed, maintained and propagated. Through your contribution, the market’s many stalls will animate economies beyond the financial.

We would like to invite you to contribute because (include discussion of relevant project/connection/etc.) fits well with the ethos of our event.

The format that your contribution takes is flexible and will vary among 'stallholders'; we envisage that activities will take many forms. Your contribution may take the form of a talk, performance or another representation of practice. This could also be an opportunity to share information about your practice or organisation, with your market stall providing a context for this exchange. We can provide some help with the production of stalls and would be pleased to discuss possibilities with you.

#TransActing will take place between 12 -5 on 11th July 2015 in London at Chelsea College of Arts on the Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground, across from Tate Britain.

I look forward to hearing from you and do let me know if you would like to discuss #TransActing further,

Best Wishes,
(include your name here)
On behalf of Critical Practice, London, UK

Do you have an interest in music, its subcultures or ephemera? Does your work engage these topics or deal with issues relevant to the record store context such as consumerism, value or systems of exchange?

We are looking for an ambitious, three-dimensional art practitioner who is interested in developing a new artwork for Flashback Records on Bethnal Green Road – someone who can innovatively respond to the positive constraints and unique circumstances of this record store environment.

Pangaea Sculptors’ Centre has teamed up with Flashback Records to offer this opportunity. Artists are invited to apply for a month-long, part-time residency in March 2015. This will culminate in the production of a temporary, site-specific artwork to be on exhibition in the store for a month in May 2015.

A financial award of £500 will be provided to assist with the artwork’s production.

THE SELECTION PANEL

Marsha Bradfield: Curator and Director of Pangaea Sculptors' Centre, London Sven Mündner: CCI Consultant and previously Co-founder of Hannah Barry Gallery and Bold Tendencies John [ ]: Manager, Flashback Records, London Lucy Tomlins: Producer and Director of Pangaea Sculptors' Centre, London Cathy Wills: Chair, Contemporary Art Society, London

The artist remains the owner of the work. If the artwork sells, PSC requests a contribution of 20% of final sale price to support the on-going development of the organisation.

This opportunity has been made possible by the generous support of Arts Council England.
